Prior to joining the Phillies, the 61-year-old was the pitching coach for the Boston Red Sox for the 2012 season but was fired in on August 20, 2012 as the team endured a 69-win campaign.
McClure previously served as the pitching coach of the Kansas City Royals from 2006-2011. Prior to joining Kansas City, he was a pitching coach in the Colorado Rockies organization from 1999-2005. He played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball from 1975-1993 pitching for seven different teams.
