The Colorado Rockies are bringing back three coaches as they search for manager Walt Weiss’ replacement.

The team announced Tuesday that third base coach Stu Cole, pitching coach Steve Foster and bullpen coach Darren Holmes will remain on staff.

Those not returning include hitting coach Blake Doyle, bench coach Tom Runnells, catching/defensive positioning coach Rene Lachemann and first base coach Eric Young.

With his contract expired, Weiss stepped down after the season. The Rockies finished 75-87, their best record since 2010.

The team plans to interview external candidates in addition to internal ones such as Glenallen Hill, who finished up his fourth season as manager of the Rockies’ Triple-A affiliate.
