The Yankees have some big decisions to make this offseason, and will certainly be looking to add to its already talented roster. 

One thing New York will not have to worry about is the coaching staff, as GM Brian Cashman announced Friday that all of the team's coaches will return for the 2019 season.

Aaron Boone will be back on the bench after leading the Yankees to 100 wins in his first season as manager.

Reggie Willits (first base), Phil Nevin (third base), Josh Bard (bench), Carlos Mendoza (infield), and P.J. Pilittere (assistant hitting) will also all be back for their second season with the club in 2019. 

Marcus Thames will serve as hitting coach for the second season after spending two years as the team's assistant hitting coach. Finally, Larry Rothschild and Mike Harkey will be back for their ninth and 10th seasons, respectively, as the Yankees' pitching and bullpen coach.
