The Dodgers announced on Friday their coaching staff for the 2021 season. It remained exactly the same as last year, with only one new addition. After first base coach George Lombard left to become the Tigers’ new bench coach, there was an opening at first base.
The team has brought in Clayton McCullough to be their new first base coach. The 40-year-old will be entering his seventh season with the Dodgers organization. Over the years, he’s served as a minor league field coordinator and helped oversee the Dodgers’ operation at the alternative site on the USC campus last season.
Prior to joining the organization in 2015, McCullough worked for the Toronto Blue Jays organization from 2006-2014, serving as the manager of the GCL Blue Jays (2006-2007), Class-A Lansing Lugnuts (2008-2009), Advanced-A Dunedin Blue Jays (2010-2011) and Class-A Vancouver Canadians (2012-2013).
The rest of the coaching staff remains intact:
Dave Roberts – Manager (6th season)
Bob Geren – Bench Coach (6th season)
Mark Prior – Pitching Coach (4th season)
Josh Bard – Bullpen Coach (2nd season)
