Biographical Information[edit]

Catcher Gary Tuck played three seasons in the Montreal Expos organization.

After his playing days ended, he was an assistant coach at Arizona State University in 1980-1981 and a minor league manager and coach for the Houston Astros and New York Yankees. He was a coach for the Tucson Toros in 1982-1984, Osceola Astros in 1986, and Columbus Clippers in 1989. He was the Florida Marlins' bench coach in 2006 and became the Boston Red Sox bullpen coach in 2007. He served with the Red Sox under managers Terry Francona and Bobby Valentine. After the 2012 season, he was the only member of Valentine's coaching staff to be retained by new manager John Farrell heading into 2013, but in January of that year, he decided not to return for a seventh season in the role.

In 2014, he joined the New York Yankees as bullpen coach, replacing Mike Harkey. He stayed on for the 2015 season, then lost his job to Harkey, who returned to pinstripes after two seasons as pitching coach with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
