Rich Dubee will not return to Phillies next year

PHILADELPHIA - The Phillies announced Monday morning that Rich Dubee will not return as the team's pitching coach in 2014. Dubee has served as pitching coach in Philadelphia for the last nine seasons, tying him for the longest tenure at the position in franchise history.

Once former manager Charlie Manuel was fired in August, it was expected that Dubee would soon follow with new skipper Ryne Sandberg now at the helm.

Dubee led the pitching staff to five National League East division titles and a World Series championship in 2008.

After overseeing the league's top pitching staff in 2011, the team's ERA has climbed significantly over the last two seasons.

The Phillies now have two openings, pitching and third base coach. More changes are expected within the next few days.
