Steinbrenner to give Strawberry coaching job

February 19, 2002

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- George Steinbrenner has not given up on Darryl Strawberry.

The New York Yankees owner said Tuesday the troubled former outfielder will be offered a job as a player development coach after completing court-mandated drug treatment.

``He will join me,'' Steinbrenner said. ``He will come with us. He knows he has a place to go.''

Strawberry was sentenced May 18 to two years' house arrest at a rural Florida drug treatment center.

Steinbrenner has been monitoring the progress of the eight-time All-Star, and said he deserves another opportunity.

``I'll take that chance,'' Steinbrenner said. ``You got reach out and help.''

The position likely would involve working with minor league players at the Yankees' complex in Florida.
