Remember how in the last few years the Yankees have tried to have "an All-Star at every position?"
Well, that philosophy seems to have extended to their coaching staff. With some new hires in the fold, here is their coaching staff, full of ex-Yankee stars or former managers:
Joe Torre - Manager (1996 / 1998 AL Manager of the Year with NYY)
Lee Mazzilli - Bench Coach (Baltimore Orioles manager 2004-2005, former Yankee 1B / OF coach)
Larry Bowa - 3B coach (2001 NL Manager of the Year with PHI)
Tony Pena - 1B coach (2003 AL Manager of the Year with KC)
Don Mattingly - Hitting Coach (retired #23 with Yankees)
Ron Guidry - Pitching Coach (retired #49 with Yankees)
Joe Kerrigan - Bullpen Coach (Red Sox Manager 2001 - between Williams and Little)
Side Note: Too bad Mazzilli couldn't stay on with the Orioles to join Sam Perlazzo and Leo Mazzone to fulfill a quest of having a "ZZ" in every coach's name.
