Ron Gardenhire's coaching staff was announced in Detroit on Thursday when the unofficial World Series "no news" moratorium was lifted.



Gardenhire, who managed the Twins for 13 seasons, will have three of his former Twins coaches on staff -- bench coach Steve Liddle, bullpen coach Rick Anderson and quality control coach Joe Vavra.

Liddle was Gardenhire's bench coach from 2002-10, and his third base coach for the following two seasons.

Anderson was the Twins pitching coach under Gardenhire for all of Gardenhire's seasons in Minnesota, from 2002-14. Chris Bosio will be the Tigers pitching coach.

Vavra was Gardenhire's hitting coach from 2006-12 and third base coach in 2013 and 2014.  He was retained when Paul Molitor took over as manager in 2015, and was Molitor's bench coach until last week.

The Twins have not named a new bench coach.
