This will be the 28-year-old Graham’s first professional managerial assignment.  He spent last season as the Tigers’ minor league catching coordinator, while also serving as the hitting coach for the Gulf Coast League Tigers.

Graham spent five seasons in the minor leagues as a player, all with the Tigers organization.  He reached Triple A in 2007, appearing in 36 games with the Toledo Mud Hens.

The Sydney, Australia native played for Australia in both the 2006 and 2009 World Baseball Classics.

Graham’s coaching staff includes Jorge Cordova and Scott Dwyer, who will return as Connecticut’s pitching and hitting coaches respectively.  Athletic trainer T.J. Saunders will move up to the West Michigan Whitecaps in 2011.  His replacement has not been announced.
