LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Don Mattingly will return as manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers next season, along with most of his coaching staff.

Tim Wallach was named the new bench coach Monday, moving over from third base to replace Trey Hillman, who was fired last month. Lorenzo Bundy, who was managing at Triple A-Albuquerque, joins the team to take Wallach's spot.

Mattingly returns for his fourth season with general manager Ned Colletti making no announcement about a possible contract extension. Mattingly's option worth $1.4 million vested with the team's first-round playoff victory over Atlanta. He is 260-225 at the helm, guiding the Dodgers to the NL championship series, where they lost to St. Louis in six games last month.
