David Ross hired by Cubs as Joe Girardi’s managing options narrow

New York Post Sports 1 month ago

Joe Girardi is down to two managerial options, as the Cubs are hiring another former catcher to take over their club.

NBC Sports Chicago reported that the team plans on hiring David Ross to take over for Joe Maddon. Girardi was one of several candidates for the position and remains a possibility for the Mets and Phillies jobs. He has already had two interviews with both NL East clubs and is reportedly the favorite in Philadelphia.

“I think they are all good jobs, really good jobs,” Girardi said Tuesday on WFAN, before the Cubs news broke. “They all have great markets, they all have passionate fans that want to win, they have ownership groups that want to win. So I think they are all good jobs.”

Carlos Beltran, Eduardo Perez, Luis Rojas, Derek Shelton and Tim Bogar are also among those receiving a second interview with the Mets.

Ross has worked as an advisor for the Cubs and as an analyst for ESPN since he retired following the Cubs’ World Series-winning 2016 season.
