Mark Wiley staying with the Marlins

Mark Wiley is staying on with the Fish.

Mark Wiley, fired by the Marlins from his old job as pitching coach, has accepted a job as a special assistant to the Marlins' general manager.

This is good news.  We now have a pitching coach at the ready and someone in the front office who understands the machinations of pitching.  Hopefully they will give him a decent enough expense account that he can travel around and give advice to youngsters in the system.

I will say it once more, I still don't understand why he was removed as the pitching coach.
