In addition to looking for a new head coach and General Manager, the Bears will need a new offensive coordinator, too.
According to ESPN’s Field Yates, and via ESPNChicago.com’s Jeff Dickerson, the Bears have parted ways with Aaron Kromer.
Kromer’s job security had been speculated upon after he was revealed to have been a source for an NFL Media report critical of quarterback Jay Cutler. He apologized for his actions and kept his job for the final three games of the season.
However, with head coach Marc Trestman departing after a disastrous 5-11 season, it’s very likely the Bears will have a majority of new assistant coaches in 2015.
Kromer was an offensive assistant for five seasons with New Orleans before joining Chicago in 2013.
