Rico Brogna joining the Angels' coaching staff?

This explains it all, you just need to be from Arizona or Colorado.

In 2010 he managed the Mobile BayBears, the Arizona Diamondbacks Double-A minor league affiliate

 

From Hardball Talk:

"This is not weird simply because Brogna was a pretty bad hitter with a pretty bad approach to hitting for much of his career ... But it is weird in that Brogna has spent almost his entire post-playing career coaching high school football and basketball and stuff. He spent a year managing in minor league baseball, but for the most part he’s been a multi-sport journeyman coach, making tons of stops. The lack of obvious hitting coach bona fides and the fact that he’s been mostly away from the game for a decade plus is what makes this weird."

I don't think he's been as "away from the game" as that article claims though. He's apparently been scouting for the Rays over the past few years as well.

Can confirm this. RT @Gambo620 The Diamondbacks have hired pitching guru Dave Duncan as a pitching consultant/special assitant to the GM

Don't worry. Our pitching is in the very capable hands of Mike Butcher.
