Royals coaches Gibbons, McClure won't return

Kansas City Royals bench coach John Gibbons and pitching coach Bob McClure won't return for the 2012 season.

Royals manager Ned Yost made the announcement Thursday, one day after the Royals finished the season 71-91 -- the 11th time since 1997 that they have lost at least that many games.

The remainder of the Royals coaching staff -- hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, first base coach Doug Sisson, third base coach Eddie Rodriguez and bullpen coach Steve Foster -- will be back for next season.
