PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Wally Joyner and Juan Samuel are returning as coaches for the Philadelphia Phillies under manager Ryne Sandberg.

Joyner will continue in his role as assistant hitting coach. Joyner, who declined a return at first, will be back for his second season with the Phillies.

Samuel heads into his fourth season with the team and second as first-base coach.

Sandberg, who replaced Charlie Manuel in August, hired former Phillies manager and shortstop Larry Bowa to be his bench coach.

The Phillies are still looking for a pitching coach to replace Rich Dubee.
