After failing to land a manager job following interviews with several teams Pat Listach has reportedly decided to leave his gig as the Nationals’ third base coach to become the Cubs’ bench coach.
Bill Ladson of MLB.com writes that an official announcement is expected shortly after the World Series.
Prior to joining the Nationals’ coaching staff Listach spent four seasons managing in the minors as part of the Cubs’ organization, including a successful stint at Triple-A.
He was an early candidate for the Cubs job before they narrowed things down to Mike Quade and Ryne Sandberg, and the 43-year-old former Rookie of the Year will now be Quade’s right-hand man.
