The Rangers have announced that bench coach Art Howe and third-base coach Matt Walbeck won't return next season, and Andy Hawkins is a candidate to remain as the pitching coach. Jim Colborn, who spent the final two months as the bullpen coach, will return to his post as director of Pacific Rim operations.
Hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo and first-base coach Gary Pettis will return. If Hawkins isn't retained as the pitching coach after replacing Mark Connor on Aug. 1, he will return to Triple-A Oklahoma.
