The Padres have fired executive vice president and general manager Josh Byrnes.

The writing was on the wall for Byrnes, as he was hired by a former owner and has been at the helm of another disappointing Padres team. In his two-plus years as general manager, the Padres had a 184-215 record. Omar Minaya and A.J. Hinch will take over the GM duties on an interim basis until the Padres hire someone. "We are looking for someone who can define, direct and lead this franchise’s baseball philosophy for years to come," Padres President and CEO Mike Dee said in a statement.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports believes that if Rick Renteria becomes the next manager of the Cubs, that Brad Ausmus could be his successor as the Padres bench coach.

Renteria has emerged in recent days as one of the favorites for the Cubs managerial vacancy. Ausmus himself has garnered consideration for several managerial gigs this offseason, as he interviewed for the Nationals opening and has been mentioned as a candidate in Detroit. Current base coaches Dave Roberts and Glenn Hoffman would also be options to replace Renteria as bench coach should he move on.
