We can scratch another name off the list of candidates to be the next Cubs manager.
Citing “personal and professional reasons,” Bob Brenly has withdrawn his name from consideration for the team’s managerial position, according to ESPNChicago.com.
“With all due respect to the organization, to the Ricketts family and to
Jim, I just didn’t feel at this particular time that this was a good
fit for me,” Brenly said. “I’ve said all along that I would love to get
back on the field if I felt the situation was right, but for personal
and professional reasons, this is not the right time for me.”
Brenly said he has been in contact with other teams about their managerial vacancies, but would be open to returning to his job as Cubs broadcaster next season.
The Cubs have already interviewed former Indians manager Eric Wedge and Triple-A Iowa Ryne Sandberg, while current interim manager Mike Quade, Nationals coach Pat Listach, former Diamondbacks manager Bob Melvin and former Mariners manager Don Wakamatsu, among others, are also under consideration for the position. Former Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez also recently withdrew his name for consideration for the Cubs job, as he is the odds-on favorite to replace Bobby Cox in Atlanta.
