NEW YORK (AP) -- The Yankees are bringing back their entire coaching staff next season under manager Joe Girardi.

New York said Friday it has retained Mike Harkey (bullpen), Mick Kelleher (first base), Kevin Long (hitting), Tony Pena (bench), Larry Rothschild (pitching) and Rob Thomson (third base).

Girardi was hired before the 2008 season and agreed last month to a four-year contract. The Yankees missed the playoffs this season for just the second time in 19 years.
