Phillies not to renew pitching coach Rich Dubee's contract

PHILADELPHIA - September 30, 2013

Dubee tenure as pitching coach for the Phillies stretched nine years – the longest at that position for the Phillies in the last 35 years and tied with Cy Perkins (1946-54) and Ray Rippelmeyer (1970-78) for the most in club history.

In a statement released Monday, Senior Vice President and General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said, "Rich was a big part of a wonderful era here and in his nine years he served our organization very well… We believe it is time for change as we move forward. We thank Rich for his professionalism and contribution to the Phillies."

It was not said who the Phillies plan to replace Dubee with moving forward.
