The Los Angeles Dodgers announced Monday that manager Don Mattingly and nine of his coaches will be back in 2014 after finalizing contracts.
Mattingly will return for his fourth season as the Dodgers manager with only one change to his coaching staff.
The Dodgers fired bench coach Trey Hillman in October, but will retain Tim Wallach, who will move from third-base coach to bench coach. Wallach had interviewed for managerial jobs with the Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners.
Lorenzo Bundy is the only addition to the coaching staff. He will take over as third-base coach after managing the team's Class AAA affiliate in Albuquerque.
Also returning are hitting coaches Mark McGwire and John Valentine, pitching coaches Rick Honeycutt and Ken Howell, first-base coach Davey Lopes and bullpen coach Chuck Crim.
Part-time coaches Manny Mota and Steve Yeager were also retained.
