Two Cubs coaches reportedly headed to Angels

The Chicago Cubs will have a much different look with their players AND coaches in 2020.
Butterfield had been with the Cubs the last two seasons (hired by Maddon) while the well-liked Buss had been with the Cubs since 2001.
Buss' loss will obviously be felt but the team wants to use more data-driven analytics in their strength programs instead of old-school methods. Director of high-performance Adam Beard could step in and fill the strength and conditioning role for the Cubs.
No word yet on any new coaches under David Ross yet.
Venerable strength/conditioning coach Tim Buss leaves Cubs for Angels, about 4 months after Mark O’Neal, Director of Medical Services, departs for U of Arkansas men’s hoops. More changes in Cubs medical/training staff, along with 3B coach Brian Butterfield to Angels.— Mark Gonzales (@MDGonzales) November 1, 2019
