Former Cubs boss Maddon named Angels manager

Former Chicago Cubs skipper Joe Maddon was named the new manager of the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday, returning to the MLB franchise where he started his career.

Maddon beat off competition from Buck Showalter, John Farrell and Johnny Washington following a round of interviews last week, the Angels said. No details of the contract were revealed but US media reports said Maddon had agreed terms on a three-year deal. Maddon’s return to California is a homecoming of sorts for the experienced 65-year-old, who spent 31 years with the Angels in a variety of roles before leaving to join the Tampa Bay Rays in 2006 prior to his stint with the Cubs. Maddon was released by the Cubs last month, three years after leading the franchise to victory in the World Series in 2016, ending the team’s 108-year wait for a championship.
