Jeff Prince Correspondent INovember 3, 2008

Confirming previous reports, Milwaukee Brewers GM Doug Melvin is confirming that former pitching coach Mike Maddux is headed to the Texas Rangers.

It is believed the Rangers "overwhelmed" Maddux with a multi-year deal making him one of the highest paid pitching coaches in the game.

Although contract terms are not available, it is believed the deal is for a minimum of three years.

Maddux, 47, has been the Brewers pitching coach the last six seasons. This season he led the Brewers pitching staff to post a 3.85 ERA, ranking second in all of Major League Baseball.
