Rockies to retain entire coaching staff

BY foxsports • September 27, 2011

None of the Colorado Rockies' coaches will pay the price for Colorado's disappointing season with their jobs.

The club announced Tuesday that the entire coaching staff will be back in 2012.

Most of manager Jim Tracy's staff had been shrouded in uncertainty before the announcement, most notably pitching coach Bob Apodaca and hitting instructor Carney Lansford, whose old-school style didn't sit well initially with the players this season.

Lansford will have hip replacement surgery next month, something he said will make his job easier.

Others who will be back are bench coach Tom Runnells, first base coach Glenallen Hill, third base coach Rich Dauer, bullpen coach Jim Wright and catching coach Marv Foley.
