Michael Roger Goff (born September 30, 1962) is the current hitting coach for the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Goff was a coach for the Seattle Mariners from August 2005 through 2007, serving as first base coach before being promoted to bench coach when John McLaren was named manager in June 2007. On October 5, 2007, it was announced that his contract would not be renewed; Goff had worked in the Mariners system since 1992. A former second baseman and native of Mobile, Alabama, Goff was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 21st round (535th overall) of the June 1984 draft out of the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He played for four seasons (1984–1987) in the Boston farm system, peaking at the Double-A level. He threw and batted right-handed, and was listed at 6 feet (1.8 m) tall and 175 pounds (79 kg).

After leaving the Mariners, Goff managed in the Cincinnati Reds and San Francisco Giants organizations (2008–2011; 2013–2014). He was hired as the bench coach by the Miami Marlins on May 18, 2015.[1]

He resides in Midlothian, Virginia, with his wife, Mary, and three children, Crystal, Katie, and Connor.
