According to Ken Rosenthal, Brent Strom is not retiring and is expected to be hired as the pitching coach for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Strom apparently had no issue with the Astros, but was just ready to move on to something new. Houston was prepared to move forward without Strom, as he announced he would not be returning after the World Series. So this doesn't change much for the Astros, but clearly Strom was not ready to retire.
