DENVER -- The contracts of Colorado Rockies hitting instructor Carney Lansford and third-base coach Rich Dauer weren't renewed in the wake of manager Jim Tracy's unexpected resignation over the weekend.

Lansford served two seasons under Tracy and the Rockies batted .274 this season, tops in the National League but they hit just .241 on the road as they finished 64-98, worst in franchise history.

Dauer spent four years as the Rockies' bench coach and seven seasons in the organization overall. He also served as Colorado's infield coach and co-ordinator of all defensive positions.

Bill Geivett, director of major league operations, said he has no set timetable for hiring a replacement for Tracy, who forfeited the $1.4 million left on his contract for next season.
