The Championship draught buster himself, Theo Epstein has announced he will be stepping down as President of Baseball Operations for the Chicago Cubs on November 20th, 2020.

The 46-year-old  has been with the Cubs organizations for nine seasons, tearing the club down upon arrival in order to completely rebuild the franchise. His decisions and eventually culminated into the Chicago Cubs historic 2016 World Series title in which the franchise ended a 108 year championship drought.

The team announced that general manager Ted Hoyer will be stepping in to take over for Epstein.

Prior to Epstein joining the Cubs, Epstein had helped the Boston Red Sox organization snap their own World Series drought, winning championships in 2004 and 2007.

Although there has been speculation about Epstein moving on to another MLB organization, he has made no hints at that being a reality come next summer.
