Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The Chicago Cubs granted assistant general
manager Randy Bush a three-year contract extension.
The Tribune reported the move on Tuesday, saying that GM Theo Epstein will
retain the 54-year-old, who was brought into the organization in 2005 as
special assistant to then-GM Jim Hendry. Bush was promoted in 2006 as
assistant general manager, then was bumped up to interim GM when Hendry was
fired in August of 2011.
Bush continued to serve as an assistant general manager under Epstein last
season, and will be one of two men to hold the post going forward, as Shiraz
Rehman was promoted earlier this month.
In other news, the Cubs solidified their coaching staff for the 2013 season,
naming former major-league infielder David Bell third base coach and removed
the interim tag from hitting coach James Rowson.
