As new Bears coach Matt Nagy continues to build his staff, another veteran assistant has emerged as a possibility.

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, fired Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell could be in the mix for one of the few open jobs on the Bears offensive staff.

He hasn’t worked with Nagy directly, but Bevell was Brad Childress’ offensive coordinator with the Vikings, and Nagy just finished a stint working alongside Childress in Kansas City.

The Bears have a vacancy for a quarterbacks coach, and have talked to former Raiders offensive coordinator Todd Downing and Texans quarterbacks coach Pat O’Hara.

Bevell was fired after seven years with the Seahawks. He interviewed for the Bears head coaching job in 2013 when they hired Marc Trestman.

  1. Hahahaha! Have fun with that. Get ready for Tarvaris Jackson as your quarterback and throwing the ball from the 1-yard line with a Hall of Fame power back in your backfield.

  2. I love when the one hit wonder Seattle fans come on other teams threads and laugh it up. Seattle wasn’t relevant for 40 plus years before finally winning a single SB. News flash your team has choked and been in slow decline since then, no one cares about Seattle.

  3. A franchise that for the majority of its exhistence has had a long waiting list for season tickets. A franchise that had very little playoff success up til Mike Holmgren signed on. But for the last 17 years has been one of the top 6-8 teams out of 32….nobody cares about huh. Good luck Bevs….your line pretty much killed your legacy here. Oh, and throwing a tight quarters slant to our special team player for a super bowl.

  4. if the league officials did not look the other way while seattle defensive backs were mugging receivers at the line of scrimmage, seattle would not have won its one and only super bowl.

  5. it was time for a change in Seattle – but I don’t discount the good years he had, Seattle’s been a winning team for a lot of years now, and he’s been part of it – change of scenery, and he could be effective again.

  6. The Bears already hired an OC – Helfrich. Do any of you bitter Seattle fans read??? He’s not going to be the OC he will be a staff member on the offense, probably QB coach if even hired.

    The Seahawks are not relevant anymore, wake up!!
