Mike Tice gets contract extension with Bears

Bears offensive line coach Mike Tice didn’t get a chance to be the Titans offensive coordinator, but he did get a little extra money in his pocket from the Bears.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that Tice got a one-year extension through 2012 on Wednesday.   (He presumably got a pay bump on the final year too.)  In exchange, the man formerly known as Meathead essentially can’t complain about not getting his shot for a promotion.

Tice wasn’t the only Bears assistant to get an extension.  Running backs coach Tim Spencer, defensive backs coach Jon Hoke, and linebackers coach Bob Babich all were extended through 2012.
