    It must be some type of health or personal issue. Why else would you leave 2 weeks before Spring Training.I remember reading somewhere that Lavarnway was working with him this offseason.

    Actually a pretty big loss for the sox. Tuck is one of, if not, the best at what he does.

    This job has Jason Varitek written all over it.

    Red Sox bullpen coach and catching instructor Gary Tuck resigned from his position Tuesday for personal reasons. Tuck had been working with Ryan Lavarnway in Fort Myers, Fla., the past week, but informed general manager Ben Cherington he would not be returning.

    Cherington said the team is exploring internal options to fill the position.

    Tuck, who was the lone holdover from fired manager Bobby Valentine’s staff, took a leave of absence last season because of personal matters. He was replaced then by minor league instructor Chad Epperson.

    Tuck has a good reputation for his catching knowledge and instruction. He helped in the development of former Yankees star Jorge Posada and was instrumental in the improvements made by Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Lavarnway.

    Former catcher Jason Varitek, who is a special assistant to Cherington, could be a candidate to replace Tuck.

    I hope his health improves or that of his family. Hate to see a guy leave for any other reason than "baseball reasons". On the bright side, the new Skipper probably knows a guy or two for the job.

    The Red Sox informed the beat writers today that bullpen coach Gary Tuck has retired, not resigned. That would seem to indicate he will not be working for another team.

    Tuck was believed to have a multiyear deal. He was the only holdover from the 2012 staff for a good reason — the Red Sox pitchers and catchers had a great deal of faith in him.

    That said, Tuck was one of the more unusual characters around the team. He generally refused to speak to reporters, which is very odd for a coach. He wouldn't even acknowledge your presence. You could pass him in the hallway and say, "How's it going?" and get nothing in return. Not even a glance.

    But players swore by him, and that's all that really counts for a coach. He was very good at his job.
