    Chris Chambliss served as the Seattle Mariners' hitting coach during the 2011 and 2012 seasons.

SEATTLE -- The Seattle Mariners will not retain hitting coach Chris Chambliss for 2013 after another season during which their offense was among the worst in baseball.
The Mariners made the announcement Thursday. The rest of Seattle's coaching staff will return next season, the team said in a press release.
Chambliss was Seattle's hitting coach the past two seasons. The 63-year-old previously was the hitting coach for the New York Yankees and Mets, St. Louis and Cincinnati.
The Mariners finished last in baseball this season in batting average (.234), on-base percentage (.296), slugging percentage (.369) and on-base plus slugging (.665). They were also last in baseball in most major offensive categories in 2011.
General manager Jack Zduriencik said the search for a new hitting coach will begin immediately.
