Charlie Manuel is coming back to the Philadelphia Phillies, but not as the skipper. Action News has confirmed that Manuel will be a special advisor to General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr.

In his new role, Manuel will be involved in scouting and instruction.

When he was fired as manager back in August, the team had said they hoped he would stay on in some capacity. At the time, Charlie said he was going to think about it.

Once again, Charlie Manuel is back with the Phils.
