Ivan DeJesus Named Cub Coach ... Of Something

I guess it wasn't enough to get rid of Sonny Jackson with Dusty Baker leaving; Ivan DeJesus has now apparently been hired for that exact role:

The Chicago Cubs today announced that former Cubs shortstop Ivan DeJesus has been named the Major League club's special assistant to Manager Lou Piniella.

If anyone knows just what a "special assistant" to a field manager does, please let us know. I thought that was what the bench coach was for.
