Bosio accepts job as Cubs pitching coach
The Cubs continued to fill out their 2012 coaching staff over the weekend, as Chris Bosio accepted new manager Dale Sveum’s offer to become the Cubs’ next pitching coach. Prior to joining the Cubs, Bosio worked with Sveum in the Brewers organization, where he served as pitching coach for the team’s Triple-A affiliate in Nashville. Bosio, who pitched in the major leagues for 11 seasons with Milwaukee and Seattle, joins hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo, new bench coach Jamie Quirk and bullpen coach Lester Strode on the Cubs’ retooled coaching staff.
Last week, Cubs President Theo Epstein said he plans to announce most of the new coaching staff this week at the winter meetings in Dallas.
