The Colorado Rockies let go three coaches after a disappointing 74-88 season.
Not offered contracts by the Rockies Tuesday were hitting coach Alan Cockrell, third base coach Mike Gallego and bench coach Jamie Quirk. Bullpen coach Rick Mathews has been reassigned to a role to be determined later.
Mathews has been with the team for 17 seasons and had been bullpen coach since 2003. He previously spent seven years as a pitching coordinator with the Rockies.
Pitching coach Bob Apodaca and first base coach Glenallen Hill will return for the 2009 season.
