(CBS) Dale Sveum is officially the new manager of the Chicago Cubs.

Sveum comes to the Cubs from the Milwaukee Brewers where he was the club’s hitting coach. He signed a three-year deal with the Cubs with an option for 2015, according to multiple reports.

“When you’re dealing with the Cubs and any major market, you’re expected to win that year,” Sveum said after his interview with the Cubs. “You’re not expected to be rebuilding or doing anything other than thinking about winning the World Series. That’s anybody’s goal, and obviously very important to the city of Chicago and the Chicago Cubs and Theo Epstein to win the World Series, not to just compete and play .500 baseball or something like that.”

The Cubs will formally introduce Sveum at a Wrigley Field press conference Friday morning at 9 a.m.
