ATLANTA, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Atlanta has made a number of coaching moves for next season, including replacing third base coach Fredi Gonzalez, who was named Florida manager Tuesday.

Longtime bench coach Pat Corrales did not have his contract renewed according to Braves General Manager John Schuerholz and Manager Bobby Cox.

Former bullpen coach Bobby Dews will attend spring training with the major league club and will assist at most Braves home games. He will also make player evaluations by traveling to minor league clubs when the parent team is on the road.

Returning for 2007 will be first base coach Glenn Hubbard, pitching coach Roger McDowell and hitting coach Terry Pendleton.

Bench coach Chino Cadahia, third base coach Brian Snitker and bullpen coach Eddie Perez will be new next season.
