Former outspoken White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen was last seen in the majors back in 2012 managing the Miami Marlins to a horrible 69-93 record.

This past season he is managing back in his home country of Venezuela. However, Guillen is ready to get back to the majors and actually join the North Siders if asked by the Chicago Cubs.

"Of course yes, if Maddon asked me to be his bench coach, I'd do it, Guillen said during a radio interview to Mully and Hanley on Tuesday afternoon.

It doesn't appear that this would be a great fit as Guillen and Maddon's personalities would probably clash 100% of the time.

Guillen was named the AL manager of the year in 2005 as he led the White Sox to a sweep of the Houston Astros. His overall managerial record in the majors is 747 wins with 710 losses for a .513 winning percentage.

During his 16-year major league playing career, he batted .264 with 28 homers and 619 RBIs.
