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.
