CHICAGO -- Former Chicago Cubs player Ron Coomer was named as their radio analyst on Friday, the team and WGN Radio announced.

Coomer, 47, spent nine years in the major leagues including the 2001 season with the Cubs. He’s a native of the Chicago area and has most recently been serving as an in-studio analyst for the Minnesota Twins.

“What a great homecoming for Ron,” Crane Kenney, president of business operations for the Cubs, said in a statement. “I enjoyed getting to know Ron during the process and am a fan of his work in the Twin Cities. His knowledge of the game is vast and he will be a great complement to Pat (Hughes) in the WGN booth.”

Coomer replaces Keith Moreland, who resigned after last season.
