November 7, 2013 (AP) – The Chicago Cubs have made it official and hired Rick Renteria as their new manager.

The Cubs said Renteria was given a three-year contract, with club options for 2017 and 2018. Terms were not disclosed.

The 51-year-old Renteria replaces Dale Sveum (swaym), who was fired after two losing seasons (127-197). He has spent the last six seasons with the San Diego Padres, most recently as their bench coach (2011-13). A former major league infielder, Renteria has also coached in the Florida Marlins organization and in March managed Mexico in the World Baseball Classic.
