Former Chicago Cubs hitting coach John Mallee has been hired as the new hitting coach for the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.

Mallee was the Cubs hitting coach for the last three years and before that, he was with the Astros (2013-14) and Marlins (2010-11).

He took to Twitter and announced his new job in major league baseball.

"I would like to thank all the teams that showed interest in me on my new journey," Mallee posted. "I have chosen the Philadelphia Phillies. Amazing young talent, been thru this before with Astros and Cubs. New chapter, Same book, Game on."

Mallee will replace former coach Matt Stairs.
