Larry Parrish, the winningest manager in Mud Hens history, will return to Toledo to manage the team again next season.
Parrish has served as Hens manager in 1994, when he took over the team in May of that season, and from 2003-2010, skipping the 2007 season because of an ankle injury.
Al Nipper will serve as the Hens' pitching coach next season, while Leon "Bull" Durham will be the team's hitting coach for the 14th season in a row.
A.J. Sager, who was Toledo's pitching coach for six seasons, will become the team’s roving pitching coordinator.
Trainer Matt Rankin, who was with the Mud Hens for 13 seasons, will join the Tigers major league staff as assistant athletic trainer. A replacement for Rankin has not been named.
