Meacham and Monteleone will not return

Third base coach Bobby Meacham and special pitching instructor Rich Monteleone will not be on the Yankees' 2009 coaching staff, according to Daily News reporter Mark Feinsand.

Meacham was one of Joe Girardi's additions to the coaching staff and was with Girardi when he managed the Marlins in 2006.

Meacham struggled at third base at times last season, so I'm not sad to see him go. I don't understand the Monteleone firing - maybe the organization wants to head in a different direction regarding the pitching staff?

Hitting coach Kevin Long is the only coach from last year's staff who has a contract for next season.

I guess "Windmill Willie" can reapply if he needs to do something in between managerial gigs...

He's still getting paid by the Mets, so I'm not too sure he'll want to return to coaching until after next season. I'd welcome his return, however.
