Dale Sveum named Cubs manager, to be introduced Friday

MILWAUKEE — Whoever was the Cubs’ closer did his job. The team has called a news conference for Friday to name Dale Sveum the next manager.

Sveum, who turns 48 on Nov. 23, reportedly received a three-year deal with an option for a fourth year. He’ll be the 52nd manager in Cubs history.

Sveum took over the Brewers as interim manager in September 2008 after Ned Yost was dismissed. The Brewers went 7-5, and rallied to clinch the NL Wild Card spot, but lost in four games to the eventual World Series champion Phillies in the NL Division Series.
