The team finished seventh in the National League with a record of 64-90, 29 games behind the Cincinnati Reds. Offseason: January 12, 1961: Billy Cowan was signed as an amateur free agent by the Cubs. Regular season: This season marked the introduction of the so-called "College of Coaches," a system instituted by owner Philip K. Wrigley after input from El Tappe. Under this system, the Cubs would have no single manager, but instead would have a rotating series of eight coaches, with one managing the team while others served as either assistant coaches or minor league field personnel.
