BOSTON (CBS) – After one season with the Boston Red Sox, Curt Young is heading back to Oakland.

The Oakland Athletics announced Friday they have brought back Young as the team’s pitching coach. In his only season in Boston, Young saw the Red Sox pitching staff fall apart in September, leading the team to a 7-20 record in the season’s final month.

Boston starters finished with a 7.08 ERA for the month of September. As a staff, the Red Sox finished with a 4.20 ERA, ninth in the American League.
