Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Phillies have begun to change the coaching staff under new manager Ryne Sandberg and on Monday declined to renew the contract of pitching coach Rich Dubee.

Dubee spent the past nine seasons as the club's pitching coach, helping the franchise to its second World Series title in 2008 and an NL pennant the following year.

"Rich was a big part of a wonderful era here and in his nine years he served our organization very well," said Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. "We believe it is time for a change as we move forward. We thank Rich for his professionalism and contribution to the Phillies.

Dubee's tenure as pitching coach matched the longest in club history, as Cy Perkins held the position from 1946-54 and Ray Rippelmeyer did so from 1970-78.
