SEATTLE -- The Mariners' new manager, Lloyd McClendon, is bringing in an entirely new coaching staff to Seattle for his first season in charge of the ballclub.
McClendon announced his coaching staff Monday.
Even though there are no coaches returning from former manager Eric Wedge's staff, a number of McClendon's hires have ties to the Mariners organization.
Howard Johnson will take over as Seattle's hitting coach, after serving in that role for the organization at Triple-A Tacoma last season.
Rick Waits will move from minor-league pitching coordinator to Seattle's pitching coach, and John Stearns will be the third-base coach and Chris Woodward will be the infield coach. Sterns managed at Tacoma last season and Woodward served as the Mariners roving minor-league infield coordinator.
McClendon is bringing in Andy Van Slyke (first-base coach) and Mike Rojas (bullpen coach) from outside the organization.
McClendon previously announced that Trent Jewett will serve as his bench coach.
