The Los Angeles Angels will have a familiar face on their coaching staff next season with Ron Roenicke set to rejoin the team as the third base coach, according to ESPN.com.

Roenicke spent 11 seasons on Mike Scioscia‘s coaching staff from 2000-2010. He was the team’s third base coach for six seasons before he replaced Joe Maddon as the bench coach. Following his departure from the Angels, Roenicke spent four seasons as the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers holding a 341-332 record. 

This included leading the team in his first season to a 96-66 marking the most wins in franchise history, and claimed its first National League Central division title in 29 years. He was fired by Milwaukee last May and finished the season with the Los Angeles Dodgers as their third base coach. 

Roenicke was one of nine candidates to interview for the Dodgers’ open managerial job to replace Don Mattingly, who left the organization to take the same position with the Miami Marlins. 

He is replacing Gary DiSarcina, who is expected to be moved to being the first base coach. Alfredo Griffin is taking up a new position as the infield coach. Dino Ebel will stay the Angels’ bench coach.
