Cubs Hire Hickey as Pitching Coach
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, IL - The Cubs have hired Jim Hickey as their pitching coach and moved Brandon Hyde to bench coach.

Hickey spent 11 years as Tampa Bay's pitching coach before a split with the Rays at the end of the season. He is reuniting with his old boss Joe Maddon in Chicago and replacing Chris Bosio, whose contract was not renewed.

Hyde takes over for Dave Martinez, who left to become the Washington Nationals' manager. Hyde was the Cubs' bench coach under Rick Renteria in 2014 and spent the next three seasons under Maddon as the first base coach.

Chicago confirmed the moves on Thursday.
