Yankees bring back Girardi's coaches for 2014

Bronx, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Yankees announced on Friday that all the coaches on manager Joe Girardi's staff will return for the 2014 season.

The coaches are bullpen coach Mike Harkey, first base coach Mick Kelleher, hitting coach Kevin Long, bench coach Tony Pena, pitching coach Larry Rothschild and third base coach Rob Thomson.

Girardi signed a four-year deal to remain with the Yankees in early October after the club went 85-77 and failed to make the playoffs for the first time since Girardi's initial season of 2008.
