BOSTON (CBS) – The Red Sox have fired pitching coach Bob McClure and named Randy Niemann as his replacement.

McClure joined the Red Sox organization as a special assignment scout/instructor in November 2011 and was named as pitching coach in December 2011.

Niemann joined the Red Sox this season as assistant pitching coach. He previously spent 24 seasons in the Mets organization, including three stints as New York’s bullpen coach for parts of the 1997-99 seasons, and the 2000-02 and 2009-10 campaigns.

Bobby Valentine and Niemann worked together when Valentine was manager of the Mets.
