UPDATE: According to Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas, Greg Maddux has officially joined the Rangers as a special assistant to the general manager.
3:44 PM: Mike Maddux turned down a chance to potentially become the Cubs’ manager and decided to remain the Rangers’ pitching coach, and now his brother, future Hall of Famer Greg Maddux, has decided to leave the organization and may be joining Mike in Texas.
Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune reports that Maddux will resign from the special assistant to the general manager job he’s held for the past two years with the Cubs and “may soon be named to a similar position with the Rangers.”
Rogers writes that the Cubs wanted to keep Greg Maddux around, but Theo Epstein won’t block him from another gig.
Texas’ front office could lose assistant general manager Thad Levine to the Astros, but Maddux is unlikely to take on such a high-ranking position right away.
