The Chicago White Sox have brought a pair of former players, Vance Law and Britt Burns, back to the organization as minor league coaches, the team announced Wednesday. Law played third base for the White Sox from 1982-84, while Burns was a pitcher with the club from 1978-85.

Head coach at BYU from 2000-12, Law has been hired as a special assistant to player development with the White Sox. Over an 11-year big league career, he hit .256/.326/.376 with 71 home runs while playing across the infield, primarily at second base and third base.

After previously spending time with the Houston Astros, Miami Marlins and Detroit Lions, Burns is returning to the White Sox to become the team's Double-A pitching coach. The man he'll be replacing, former Sox closer Bobby Thigpen, is taking over as Chicago's bullpen coach.

The White Sox also announced that Doug Sisson has been hired as outfield/baserunning instructor.
