CHICAGO (AP) -- A person familiar with the situation says San Diego Padres bench coach Rick Renteria is set to become the Chicago Cubs' manager.

The person spoke Wednesday on the condition of anonymity because the hiring has not been announced. The team is expected to make it official on Thursday.

The move ends a long search that began with the Cubs targeting New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi, only to be denied a shot when he decided to stay put.

Instead, the Cubs are hoping Renteria can help develop their young players and lead them to their first championship since 1908.

He replaces Dale Sveum, who was fired after two seasons.
