Dale Sveum Offered Chicago Cubs’ Managerial Job, SI.com Reports

Nov. 17 (Bloomberg) -- The Chicago Cubs offered their managerial job to Dale Sveum, Sports Illustrated said on its website.

Sveum will probably accept Chicago’s offer, SI.com said, citing unidentified people. Sveum interviewed with both the Cubs and Boston Red Sox.

Sveum, 47, has been a third-base coach for the Milwaukee Brewers for the past six seasons. His only previous managerial experience was an interim stint with the Brewers at the end of 2008, taking over after Ned Yost was fired with 12 games left in the regular season.

Sveum was a third-base coach on Boston’s 2004 championship team before joining Milwaukee. In Chicago, he would join former Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein, who became the Cubs’ president of baseball operations last month.

Sveum was the only candidate to interview twice in person with both the Cubs and Red Sox, and Boston made no offer following his second visit yesterday, SI.com said.
