This is his ninth season as a coach or manager in the Cubs organization, where he also managed Single-A Eugene in 2019 and the Cubs Dominican Summer League squad in 2017-18.
Nick Lovullo enters his first season as manager of the South Bend Cubs. He previously managed the Arizona Complex League Mesa Cubs in 2023 after joining the organization in 2022 as Tennessee’s bench coach.
