The Red Sox may not know who's going to pitch where next season, but according to a report, they know who is going to coach them.
ESPN is reporting that the Sox are bringing on former Royals pitching coach Bob McClure as their new pitching coach.
The Sox position was held formerly by Curt Young, who was let go by the team shortly after manager Terry Francona was.

Hopes that the Celtics would have Gordon Hayward back in the lineup later this year were dashed last night by Hayward's agent, Mark Bartelstein.
Hayward underwent surgery Wednesday night for a fractured and dislocated left tibia, and Celtics coach Brad Stevens had said earlier in the day that Hayward's prognosis would be better known after doctors saw the extent of the damage. When the operation was over, Bartelstein told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski not to expect Hayward to play again this season.
But there is good news:
“We’re expecting this to be a full recovery,” Stevens had said earlier. “No timeline on it, but a full recovery.”
