Cubs shake up coaching staff, part with Bosio, hire Davis

CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs have parted ways with pitching coach Chris Bosio and hired Chili Davis as their hitting coach as part of a major shakeup to Joe Maddon's staff following their ouster in the National League Championship Series a year after winning the World Series.

The Cubs confirmed the moves Thursday and also said Brian Butterfield will be the new third base coach. The team decided not to exercise its 2018 option on Bosio's contract.

Davis has spent the past six years as a major league hitting coach, including three with Oakland and the last three with Boston. The 19-year major leaguer was a three-time All-Star and a member of three World Series championship teams (Twins in 1991 and Yankees in 1998-99).
