The Chicago Cubs haven't made a free-agency splash yet, but they are filling out the coaching staff.

Astros bullpen coach Jamie Quirk confirmed to Fox Sports in Houston that he will be named the Cubs new bench coach.

"I'm excited. I wasn't anticipating it," Quirk said, according to the TV station. "It was too good to turn down. I wanted to get back to the bench and get more involved. They've got new ownership and a new general manager and they're kind of like the Astros are, lot of changes going on and it's kind of exciting to see what's going to happen."
