Tim Wallach has a spot on Don Mattingly's coaching staff

Oct 11, 2010, 10:47 AM EST

Tim Wallach was passed over for the Dodgers’ managerial opening in favor of Don Mattingly, but Tony Jackson of ESPNLosAngeles.com reports that “he will be a part of the Dodgers’ major league staff in 2011, either as bench coach or third-base coach.”
Assuming, of course, that Wallach isn’t hired to managed elsewhere.
According to Jackson he’s already signed a contract with the Dodgers for 2011, but “has made no secret of his desire to manage in the majors and at least one team has asked the Dodgers for permission to interview him.”
Beginning his managerial career with Wallach more or less already waiting in the wings would seem like a tough spot to put Mattingly in, but keeping Wallach in the organization would be a good move by the Dodgers given how highly thought of he seems to be and how skeptical many people are of Mattingly.

    Make him bench coach. Mattingly is clueless.
