Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto and long-time skipper Mike Scioscia will both be staying on for next season despite year-long speculation that at least one of them would be dismissed after a fourth consecutive playoff absence.

Coaches Rob Picciolo and Jim Eppard however will not return.

Picciolo had just completed his third year as Scioscia’s bench coach and Eppard was completing his first full season as the hitting coach originally taking over after Mickey Hatcher was dismissed in May 2012.
