New Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde has experience in several areas of baseball operations. He has experience coaching, scouting and being a minor league coordinator. This level of experience gives him a different perspective that several other "baseball lifer" bench coaches wouldn't have. His ability to see things from a variety of perspectives can only be a plus for the Cubs. 

Hyde joined the organization in 2011 after spending nine seasons in Florida with the Marlins organization. While there, according to Carrie Muskat, Hyde "was the Marlins’ Minor League infield coordinator to begin 2010 and spent the previous seven seasons as a Minor League manager and coach in the Marlins system." (per Chicago Now). 

In August of last year, Hyde was promoted to Cubs farm system director. That fact makes Hyde the ideal choice to be manager Rick Renteria's bench coach. Since Hyde has dealt with most of the team's current young talent, having him there on the bench for them when they get the call to the majors could be a calming influence on them. Additionally, Hyde will have added insight when making decisions on any given prospects that make it to the major league level.
