Ron Roenicke will remain the manager of the Brewers, but two other coaches will not remain with the team.

After waiting for 12 days following the end of the 2014, the decision on Ron Roenicke finally came out last Friday. After a lengthy discussion, he will remain with the Brewers for the 2015 season. However, two of his coaches, hitting coach Johnny Narron and first-base coach Garth Iorg, will not be offered new contracts and will not return. It was uncertain what the fate of Roenicke would be after the collapse, but when the discussion was done, the conclusion was that he was the right man to return for 2015. Over on, Adam McCalvy has some quotes from Ron Roenicke and Doug Melvin on the decision. The decision on changing those two coaches came down to some of the struggles that the team had seen as the season progressed. In addition to the disappearing offense, the development of infielders Jean Segura and Scooter Gennett was also a concern. The process to hire two new coaches has started, with Ron Roenicke submitting a list of names to Craig Counsell, who will help lead the search for the new hitting coach. All of the other coaches will return, and Roenicke's contract status will remain the same (signed for 2015 with a 2016 option).
