MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU) The Brewers’ entire coaching staff will return next season. Manager Ron Roenicke said last night that bench coach Jerry Narron will be back – along with pitching coach Rick Kranitz, bullpen coach Lee Tunnell, hitting coach Johnny Narron, first-base coach Garth Iorg (orj), third-base coach Ed Sedar, and outfield coach John Shelby.
Roenicke said it’s a “really good staff.” The skipper had his contract extended in May. It will run through 2014.
Tunnell replaced Stan Kyles in the bullpen two months ago. Kyles was fired July 30th after a series of meltdowns by the relievers. Roenicke said Tunnell’s big advantage is that he has worked with the Brewers’ young relievers in the past, when he was the minor league pitching coordinator.
