Longtime Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt won’t be following Don Mattingly to Miami.

According to FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi, Honeycutt will remain in his current position with the Dodgers for the next two seasons. He’s expected to transition into a special assistant role from there. The Dodgers had told their coaches that they were free to explore opportunities elsewhere after parting ways with Mattingly this month.

Honeycutt has been the Dodgers’ pitching coach for the past 10 seasons and has overseen the rise of Clayton Kershaw. The team has gone through three managers during his tenure, including Grady Little, Joe Torre, and Mattingly. The Dodgers are currently looking for Mattingly’s replacement.
