Chris Bosio Says He's Cubs' New Pitching Coach
CHICAGO (AP) -- Chris Bosio says he is leaving the Milwaukee Brewers' organization to become the Chicago Cubs' pitching coach.

Bosio tells the Appleton (Wis.) Post-Crescent he is going to work for longtime friend and new Cubs manager Dale Sveum. Bosio says he is excited and they're "going to be prepared, are going to have intensity and a lot of enthusiasm."

The Cubs declined comment on Friday.

Bosio was Sveum's teammate with the Brewers during the 1980s and early 1990s, and they worked for Milwaukee the past few years. Bosio served as interim pitching coach late in 2009 and worked as a scout before becoming the Brewers' Triple-A pitching coach last season. In Chicago, he replaces Mark Riggins.
