MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers have announced their coaching staff for the 2021 season. The announcement was made by President of Baseball Operations and General Manager David Stearns.
Assistant hitting coach Jacob Cruz (enters his 2nd season), hitting coach Andy Haines (3rd season), pitching coach Chris Hook (3rd season), bullpen coach Steve Karsay (3rd season) and bench coach Pat Murphy (6th season) will all return with manager Craig Counsell (seventh season).

Walker McKinven returns as associate pitching, catching and strategy coach.
New to the Major League staff is Quintin Berry, who joins the team as a base coach. Berry previously served as Minor League outfield and baserunning coordinator from 2019-20 after a 13-year professional playing career. He had a stint as a player/coach at Triple-A Colorado Springs in 2018.
Ed Sedar, one of the longest-tenured coaches in franchise history (2007-20), will transition to advisor to the Major League coaching staff.
