Bodie began his coaching career with the Auburn Astros in 1984 and the Columbus Astros in 1985. He was the San Francisco Giants' minor league field coordinator from 1994 to 1999. In 2001, Bodie was promoted after the minor league season to coach the Kansas City Royals - the first time in his 28 years of pro ball to be in the majors. That same year, his cousin Nicholas Chiofalo, a New York firefighter, was among the missing after responding to the World Trade Center attack. The Royals players collected $20,000 for Chiofalo's family and presented the check to Bodie. The Glass family matched the gift.
Bodie was the Royals' roving minor league outfield instructor in 2004. He was the hitting coach for the Salem Avalanche in 2008, Corpus Christi Hooks in 2009, Round Rock Express in 2010, and Oklahoma City RedHawks in 2011. Bodie returned to the manager's role in 2012 with Corpus Christi.
