Padres' coaching staff returns intact

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO - Randy Ready, who remains a candidate to become manager of the Houston Astros, is one of six coaches agreeing to contracts to return to the San Diego Padres' staff.

Padres manager Bud Black said Thursday that if Ready doesn't get the Astros job, he'll be back with the Padres.

Ready was named Padres hitting coach on July 31 to replaced the fired Jim Lefebvre. Ready had been managing Triple-A Portland at the time.

Also agreeing to one-year contract extensions were bench coach Ted Simmons, pitching coach Darren Balsley, first base coach Rick Renteria, third base coach Glenn Hoffman and bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds.
