As reported last week, the Dodgers made official their 2011 coaching staff today, who will serve under new manager Don Mattingly. Newcomers Davey Lopes (who will coach first base) and Dave Hansen (hitting instructor) both played with the Dodgers, while new bench coach Trey Hillman was the former manager of the Royals. Here is the full coaching staff:

  • Dave Hansen – Hitting Instructor (first season)
  • Trey Hillman – Bench Coach (first season)
  • Rick Honeycutt – Pitching Coach (sixth season)
  • Ken Howell – Bullpen Coach (fourth season)
  • Davey Lopes – First Base Coach (first season)
  • Manny Mota – Coach (32nd season)
  • Jeff Pentland – Hitting Coach (fourth season)
  • Tim Wallach – Third Base Coach (first season)
  • Rob Flippo – Bullpen Catcher (10th season)
  • Mike Borzello – Bullpen Catcher (fourth season)

"I’m extremely excited about this coaching staff, which has a great combination of experience and youth that will create a positive environment for our team," said Mattingly. "We’ve been able to reach back and bring in a number of coaches with Dodger roots and that’s one of the things that was very important to us. Not just the quality of the people and the experience they bring with them, but the history of this organization – where it came from and where we want to go."
