Theo Epstein resigns as President of Cubs’ Baseball Operations

Chicago Cubs offseason moves

The man responsible for bringing a World Series championship to the north side of Chicago, Theo Epstein, is resigning. Effective on Friday, November 20, Epstein will step down as President of Baseball Operations.

The Cubs announced his resignation via Twitter on Tuesday afternoon.

Epstein built the team that brought the Chicago Cubs their first World Series title in 108 years. Before his Cubs tenure, he ended an 86-year championship drought with the Boston Red Sox. Thus, Epstein ended the two longest droughts in the history of American sports.

Jed Hoyer, formerly the General Manager, will be taking over as President of Baseball Operations. There is no word on Epstein’s next MLB move.
