Biographical Information[edit]

Randy Bush was signed as a 2nd round pick in the 1979 amateur draft by the Minnesota Twins and scout Ed Dunn. He was one of seven Twins on both the Twins and 1991 world championship teams. An irregular during twelve seasons entirely in Minneapolis, Randy hit .251 with 96 home runs in 1,219 career games.

Bush later returned to the University of New Orleans (where he is a member of the school's athletic Hall of Fame [1]) as head coach from 2000 to 2004. He then moved into the front office of the Chicago Cubs. In 2011, he was the Assistant GM of the Cubs and was named interim GM on August 19 after the firing of Jim Hendry. Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts stated at the time, however, that Bush was not in line to succeed Hendry on a full-time basis. Indeed, newly-named team president Theo Epstein named his close friend Jed Hoyer as the team's new GM on October 26th. Bush was retained, serving alongside Shiraz Rehman as of 2012.
