Mike Maddux Withdraws His Name From Red Sox Manager Search

Texas Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux has withdrawn his name from consideration for the vacant managerial opening with the Boston Red Soxaccording to reports citing a Monday press release from Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington.

Maddux had been one of the favorites to win the job from almost the moment erstwhile manager Terry Francona resigned from his post at the end of September and on Thursday was given permission to speak with both the Red Sox and the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs are now run by former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein and are also in the market for a new manager.

Mike Maddux is the brother of former Cy Young Award winner Greg Maddux and has spent nine seasons as a pitching coach for Texas and the Milwaukee Brewers. Prior to that, he had pitched 15 seasons in the Major Leagues before retiring in 2000.
