The Texas Rangers yesterday announced they have given the Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs permission to interview Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux for their open managerial positions.

The Red Sox parted ways with Terry Francona after they missed the playoffs and the Cubs this week fired Mike Quade.

Maddux played 15 seasons in the major leagues from 1986-2000 and got his coaching start with the Houston Astros in their minor league system.

“Mike is in a key role for us and has had a prominent hand in our success the past few years,” Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told “But this is a unique opportunity to discuss a coveted position with two storied franchises, and we believe in allowing our people to pursue opportunities that they’re interested in. It reflects well both on Mike and our organization that he’s under consideration.”

Maddux has been with the Rangers for the past three seasons.
