  • For the 1923 season, both Jimmy Burke and Jack Ryan were listed as pitching coaches.[43][44]
  • For the 1939 season, Herb Pennock was listed as pitching coach,[46] however there is also indication that he "moved to Assistant Supervisor of Boston farm teams" that season.[88]
  • For the 1947 to 1958 seasons, Paul Schreiber is listed as hitting coach,[38] however other sources note his role as batting practice pitcher,[89][90] which is consistent with his major league playing experience.
  • For the 1959 to 1962 seasons, Rudy York was both the first base coach and hitting coach.[29]
  • For the 1967 to 1969 seasons, Bobby Doerr was both the first base coach and hitting coach.[32]
  • For 1970, George Thomas is listed as bullpen coach for the full season,[70] however other sources note his coaching role was for a limited time,[91] which is consistent with game logs showing he was an active player for several months.[92]
  • On July 19, 1976, Don Zimmer moved from third base coach to manager, and Eddie Popowski replaced him as third base coach.[2][16]
  • At the start of the 1986 season, hitting coach Walt Hriniak also assumed the duties of first base coach when Joe Morgan moved to bullpen coach.[36][19]
  • On July 15, 1988, Joe Morgan moved from third base coach to manager, bullpen coach Rac Slider replaced him as third base coach, and Jerry McNertney became the new bullpen coach.[19][20][75]
  • On July 25, 1992, Don Zimmer moved from third base coach to bench coach, and Rick Burleson assumed the duties of third base coach while still serving as hitting coach.[2][22]
  • On July 19, 1995, Al Nipper replaced John Cumberland as pitching coach.
  • On May 1, 1996, pitching coach Al Nipper was reassigned to minor league pitching coordinator and replaced by Sammy Ellis, and bullpen coach Dave Carlucci was reassigned to bullpen catcher and replaced by Herm Starrette.
  • On August 16, 2001, bullpen coach John Cumberland replaced Joe Kerrigan as pitching coach when Kerrigan was promoted to manager, and bullpen catcher Dana LeVangie replaced Cumberland as bullpen coach.
  • On September 4, 2001, pitching coach John Cumberland was fired and replaced by Ralph Treuel.
  • On June 9, 2003, Dave Wallace replaced Tony Cloninger as pitching coach when Cloninger left the team to receive treatment for cancer; Goose Gregson had filled in for Cloninger during April 5–23 and again May 30–June 8.
  • During 2004, from May 6 to July 22, Bill Haselman filled in for first base coach Lynn Jones who required eye surgery after accidentally poking himself with a screwdriver.[93]
  • During 2006, Dave Wallace missed much of the season due to illness; bullpen coach Al Nipper served as interim pitching coach and Ralph Treuel serving as interim bullpen coach until Wallace's return on August 8.[94]
  • In August 2015, due to manager John Farrell's leave of absence for cancer treatment, bench coach Torey Lovullo was elevated to interim manager, bullpen coach Dana LeVangie was elevated to interim bench coach, and Triple-A pitching coach Bob Kipper was promoted to Boston's bullpen coach.
