The San Francisco Giants made three coaching changes Saturday, including a change for longtime pitching coach Dave Righetti, the team announced.

Righetti, who had served as pitching coach since 2000, will now take on the role of special assistant to the general manager.

Assistant hitting coach Steve Decker was reassigned to the role of special assistant, baseball operations, and Mark Gardner was reassigned to serve in a special assignment role to assist in pitching evaluations.
