After Adam Gase left the Bears to become the new head coach of the Dolphins, they promoted quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains to offensive coordinator in his place.
That left the team in need of a new position coach and the Bears filled that vacancy on Friday. The team announced that they have hired Dave Ragone to fill the position.
Ragone was the offensive quality control coach on Jay Gruden’s Redskins staff in 2015 and spent a year as the Titans quarterbacks coach in 2013. He was a three-year starter at quarterback for Louisville and made two starts for the Texans during the 2003 season.
Ragone and Loggains will be charged with keeping Jay Cutler playing at the same level he was at with Gase calling the plays on offense last season. The Bears ended the season with David Fales as the backup and signed Matt Blanchard to a futures contract to round out the depth chart.
