Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Future Hall of Fame pitcher Greg Maddux was named as an assistant to Cubs general manager Jim Hendry on Monday.

Maddux spent the first seven years of his playing career in Chicago and had another stint with the club from 2004-06 before retiring from baseball after the 2008 season.

The four-time Cy Young Award winner will now be assisting the Cubs coaching staffs at major league and minor league spring training, assisting in the development of Cubs minor leaguers during the regular season and assisting Hendry and the baseball operations department in talent evaluation.

"I'm looking forward to working my way back into the game and am happy that the Cubs have given me the opportunity to do that," said Maddux. "I started my career with the Cubs and Chicago has always been the best place in the league to play. I'm eager to do whatever I can to help the organization and am looking forward to getting started at spring training."
