Leo Mazzone (In) Formally Applies for Phillies Pitching Coach Job
The Philadelphia Phillies are still without a pitching coach, but it's unknown if their taking applications.
That didn't stop former Atlanta Braves pitching coach Leo Mazzone from throwing his name in the hat.
Mazzone, a host for 680-The Fan in Atlanta took to Twitter this morning to informally apply for the Phillies vacancy.
Mazzone knows a thing or two about pitching, overseeing the likes of Greg Maddux, John Smoltz the starter, John Smoltz the closer and Tom Glavine.
With that said, Mazzone hasn't led a pitching staff since 2007 after he was fired by the Orioles two seasons on the job.
Mazzone has a trademark of sorts 'rocking' in the dugout during the game making it famous always being seated next to Bobby Cox during his time with the Braves.
The Phillies do still remain without a pitching coach, making overtures to Roger McDowell, Jim Benedict and Bryan Price.
