Yankees bring back entire coaching staff

Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees have finally announced that their entire 2013 coaching staff will return under contract for the 2014 season. Mike Harkey, Mick Kelleher, Kevin Long, Tony Pena, Larry Rothschild, and Rob Thomson will all return in the same capacity they have served.

This will be Harkey's seventh season as the Yankees bullpen coach and infield instructor. The 2014 season will be Kelleher's sixth season as first base coach and 16th year in the organization. Pena will begin his sixth season as bench coach and ninth as a member of the Yankees coaching staff. He will also continue to serve as the team's catching instructor. This will be Rothschild's fourth season as pitching coach and Long's eighth season as hitting coach for the New York Yankees. Thomson will begin his sixth season as a member of the coaching staff, fifth as third base coach, and overall 25th year with the organization. He will also continue to serve as the team's outfield instructor.

Brian Cashman had long said he was interested in bringing everyone back, but until Joe Girardi's contract was handled, which ended up being a four-year, $16 million pact, nothing would be made official. It had been rumored that the Yankees had agreed to terms with Rothschild, but now everything is official and the coaching staff is in place. Now for the players.
