New York Yankees Hire Larry Rothschild: Greg Maddux Next Up for Chicago Cubs?

November 20, 2010 by  

In a surprise move Friday, the New York Yankees replaced fired pitching coach Dave Eiland with the Cubs' Larry Rothschild. The Cubs longtime coach had survived several managerial regimes, but will now coach for former Cub Joe Girardi in the Bronx.

Rothschild was not known to be on the Yankees list of candidates, but he cited personal reasons for making the switch.

Per Wallace Matthews report on ESPN: "My reasons for pursuing and accepting this opportunity are personal and family-based, as the Yankees hold spring training in, and travel several times a year to, my hometown of Tampa. The chance to spend increased time with my family was something I wanted to explore and I am grateful for the opportunity to have done so."
