Found December 12, 2012 on
Reds Minor Leagues:
Today several of the Reds affiliates named several coaches. All were with the organization last year, but have moved up the ladder. The new manger of the Dayton Dragons will be Jose Nieves, who managed the Arizona League Reds last season. Tony Fossas will be his pitching coach. The Dragons hitting coach will be named later.
In Pensacola, Delino DeShields will be the manager. His coaches have yet to be named.
Jim Riggleman is taking over the managing duties of the Louisville Bats for 2013. His hitting and pitching coaches also have yet to be named.
According to the link to the Dragons new manager information it noted that Tom Browning and Alex Pelaez who were coaches with Dayton last year will remain with the organization. So I would expect them to be coaches at a new level in 2013.

The Reds and GM Walt Jocketty have been very active this offseason capped off by the deal to bring in leadoff hitter Shin-Soo Choo from the Indians. One day later it was announced that another Indian, free agent infielder Jack Hannahan, will join the Reds for 2013. Cincinnati had a need to add infield depth after the completion of the contracts with veterans Cario, Valdez, and Rolen.
