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.
