Report: Joe Maddon expected to be announced as Angels manager soon after his interview


It looks like Joe Maddon might have found his next managerial home quite quickly.

On Sunday it was reported that the Angels would be interviewing Maddon "early this week."

In late September the Cubs announced that they would not be renewing Maddon's contract and on Monday – a little over a week later – Scott Miller of Bleacher Report reported that the Angels are expected to announce Maddon as manager as soon as a day or two after his interview, making it a mere formality at this point.

Maddon was linked to the Angels from the moment they fired Brad Ausmus, and with good reason. Maddon was a member of the Angels organization for 31 years, amassing a record of 27-24 over two years as an interim manager ('96 and '99 seasons) and of course, he was the manager of the Cubs when they ended their championship drought of 108 years by winning the 2016 World Series.

If things progress as quickly as reports have stated, we could be seeing Maddon in an Angels jersey before the end of the week.
