METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Ron Hassey will return for a second campaign as manager of the New Orleans Zephyrs.

The team Tuesday announced Hassey will be joined by pitching coach Charlie Corbell and hitting coach Damon Minor, both of whom are returning for a third straight season.

In his first season with the Zephyrs last year, Hassey guided the club to its first winning record since 2007. He's entering his fifth season as a manager in the Miami Marlins organization, having previously managed Class AA Carolina and Class A Jupiter.

Athletic trainer Chris Olson will make his Triple-A debut this season, while strength and conditioning coach Cesar Vasquez returns for a second year.

The Zephyrs play an exhibition against the Marlins on March 30 and open the 2013 season in Nashville on April 4.
