Nagy says he's out as D-backs pitching coach

PHOENIX -- Charles Nagy said Monday night that he had been dismissed as the D-backs' pitching coach. The team confirmed the move Tuesday.

Nagy joined manager Kirk Gibson's staff in 2011, when the D-backs won the National League West before falling to the Brewers in the NL Division Series.

"It's been a great three years with the Diamondbacks," Nagy said. "On behalf of me and my family, I'd like to thank the fans in Arizona for their support and the Diamondbacks organization for the opportunity."

Nagy pitched for 14 seasons in the big leagues with Cleveland and San Diego, compiling a 129-105 record with a 4.51 ERA.

The D-backs job was his first big league pitching-coach position. He was the pitching coach for Triple-A Columbus in 2010 and held a similar position for Triple-A Salt Lake from 2005-06.

After retiring as a player following the 2003 season, he was a special assistant to baseball operations for the Indians.
