Mike Maddux grateful, thankful and still Rangers pitching coach

The Chicago Cubs introduced Dale Sveum as their new manager, ending a search that included Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux. He had been largely silent since interviewing last week, but released a statement through the Rangers at noon.

Here it is:

I'd like to congratulate Dale Sveum and the Chicago Cubs on Dale’s appointment as manager. Dale is one of the best baseball people I know and will make a fine manager. His tireless work ethic, commitment and communication skills give him the recipe to succeed.  
I would like to thank the Cubs for the flattery and opportunity to be considered a managerial candidate.  Possibly in the future a managerial position may come to fruition for me.
I am blessed to be with a quality organization, the Texas Rangers, and am looking forward to the 2012 season with high expectations. The DFW area is a great place to live, and my family loves it here. Also, I would like to thank the fans whose support of the Rangers has made our jobs even more gratifying. 
PS--To the fans I've met at the airport and grocery and home improvement stores, thanks for your support. It means a lot.
