PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Phillies have hired Bob McClure to be their pitching coach.

McClure replaces Rich Dubee, who was let go after the season. The former major league left-hander was the pitching coach for Boston in 2012 and Kansas City from 2006 to 2011.

Said manager Ryne Sandberg: "Bob brings a wealth of experience to our staff."

The Phillies also announced Thursday that Rod Nichols will remain as bullpen coach and Jesus Tiamo will return as bullpen catcher.

The 61-year-old McClure pitched 19 years in the big leagues, beginning in 1975. He was 68-57 with 52 saves and a 3.81 ERA for seven teams. McClure was a member of the 1982 American League champion Milwaukee Brewers, and he had two saves in the World Series.
