9/25 Brenly withdraws from Cubs job
Cubs TV analyst Bob Brenly said Saturday he is officially withdrawing his name from the job as Cubs manager. Brenly met with GM Jim Hendry prior to Friday’s game.
“I don’t feel that at this particular time, it was a good fit for me,” Brenly said. “For personal and professional reasons, this was not the right time for me.”
Brenly did say he has been in contact with other teams regarding their managerial openings. He wouldn’t elaborate as to why he would consider other teams but not the Cubs.
“It just kind of came to a head in the last few days,” Brenly said.
