According to a Yahoo! Sports report the Oakland A's will bring back their entire coaching staff next year in their same positions despite going 75-87, good for last place in the AL West. A's manager Bob Geren has been at the helm since the beginning of the 2007 season:
Pitching coach Curt Young will be back for a seventh season, with bullpen coach Ron Romanick returning for his third season. Tye Waller is back for his fourth season on the A’s coaching staff and his second consecutive season as the team’s bench coach.
Hitting coach Jim Skaalen, third base coach Mike Gallego and first base coach Todd Steverson all finished their first season in those roles.
