Angels Drop Pitching Coach, Bench Coach After Brad Ausmus' Firing

Pitching coach Doug White and bench coach Josh Paul will not return to the Los Angeles Angels next season.

The Angels announced the moves Tuesday, one day after firing manager Brad Ausmus.

White was in his first season as a big league pitching coach after spending six seasons working for the Houston Astros, most recently as a bullpen coach. The Angels' pitchers struggled all season long, finishing 25th out of 30 teams with a 5.12 ERA.

Paul was in his second season as the bench coach after joining the Angels from the Yankees, where he was their minor league catching coordinator.

Ausmus was fired Monday after the Angels finished 72-90 in their worst season since 1999.
