CHICAGO (AP) - A person familiar with the situation tells The
Associated Press that Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg is not expected
to land on the Chicago Cubs' coaching staff next season.
The person, who requested anonymity because he was not
authorized to comment publicly, says Sandberg could continue to
manage the Cubs' Triple-A Iowa affiliate if he wants.
The Cubs are looking for a bench coach after Alan Trammell left
Tuesday to take a similar spot on former teammate Kirk Gibson's
staff with the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Cubs recently hired interim manager Mike Quade as Lou
Piniella's full-time replacement. Quade was promoted from third
base coach to run the Cubs for the final six weeks of the season
after Piniella retired.
