Last updated on July 3rd, 2019 at 07:15 pm

The Milwaukee Brewers announced today that manager Ron Roenicke will return for the 2015 season, but two of his assistant coaches will not be rehired.

The team will not offer 2015 contracts to hitting coach Johnny Narron or first base/infield coach Garth Iorg.

Today’s announcement was made by president of baseball operations and general manager Doug Melvin.

“Over the course of the last few weeks, we have evaluated the work of Ron and his coaches and believe that this is the best course of action to take,” Melvin said. “We appreciate the work that Johnny and Garth did for us through the years, and moves like these are never easy to make. We have already started reviewing our player personnel and will continue to address the factors that led to our disappointing finish to the season.”

Narron served three seasons as hitting coach. He was named to his position on Nov, 28, 2011, replacing Dale Sveum, who was named manager of the Chicago Cubs. Iorg served four seasons as first base coach. He was named to his position on November 15, 2010.

Returning to the coaching staff for the 2015 season will be coach Mike Guerrero (second season), pitching coach Rick Kranitz (fifth season), bench coach Jerry Narron (fifth season), third base coach Ed Sedar (ninth season), outfield coach John Shelby (fifth season) and bullpen coach Lee Tunnell (fourth season).
