SI's Jon Heyman is reporting the Cubs have offered Dale Sveum the team's manager job, and that the current Brewers' hitting coach is likely to accept.

CSNChicago's Patrick Mooney and David Kaplan are both reporting Sveum is the likely man for the job, although sources would not confirm to Mooney an offer had been extended to Sveum.

Earlier this evening, Kaplan reported that Mike Maddux will not pursue the Cubs' managerial opening.
