Mariners name coaching staff; including Van Slyke, 'HoJo'

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

The Seattle Mariners have an entirely new coaching staff under new manager Lloyd McClendon, the club announced Monday.

Former Nationals base coach Trent Jewett had already been named the bench coach a few weeks ago, but now the rest of the staff is rounded out, including a few big-name former major leaguers.

Former Mets slugger -- and two-time All-Star -- Howard Johnson has been named the hitting coach, with former Pirates All-Star (three times) Andy Van Slyke will be the first-base coach.

Across the diamond from Van Slyke will be John Stearns, moving from Triple-A Tacoma manager to Mariners third-base coach.

Rick Waits is the new pitching coach while Mike Rojas is the bullpen coach and Chris Woodward will serve as the infield coach.

Finally, per seattletimes.com, the door is open for former hitting coach Dave Hansen to return as Johnson's assistant, should he be unable to find work elsewhere.
