More changes coming to Bears coaching staff

The Bears have a new defensive coordinator now, and apparently more changes are on the way for their staff.

According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears aren’t expected to retain outside linebackers coach Brandon Staley and assistant defensive backs coach Roy Anderson aren’t expected to return.

Some degree of shuffling seems natural, after former coordinator Vic Fangio left for the Broncos head coaching job and was replaced by Chuck Pagano.

They want to retain defensive backs coach Ed Donatell, but he has options.

Donatell interviewed for the coordinator job before Pagano was hired, and his contract is expiring so he’s not tied to them much longer. The Broncos are reportedly interested, as Fangio looks for help filling his staff.

  1. Look for the Bears D to regress somewhat next season, especially if they don’t enjoy the benefit of good health as they did this year. It will be on Nagy and the offense to take a couple of steps up to compensate.

  2. Cowboys take note…

    Id give Garrett a one year extension since he doesn’t call the plays on either defense or offense. He seems to be a good cheerleader for the team and a decent punching bag for the critics.

    I’d fire Linehan, asap. Hire Jason Candle.

  3. If you dig a little deeper than the surface, the Bears have some real issues ahead of them.

    They’re going to eventually see Trubisky is a college QB and they’re going to have to either resign him to a much larger contract or let him go.

    Now we grow and n the trading away of draft picks and it gets ugly.

    This take, it is awful.

    Trubisky is a young QB, but his upside is still huge and he’s under a great offensive mind at HC. He’ll be just fine.

    As for the lack of draft picks, do you honestly think anyone in Chicago regrets trading those for Trubisky OR Mack? Plus, a huge chunk of the Bears’ best players are young, from Floyd to Smith to Jackson to Cohen…

    The Bears are just fine.

  5. Heck for us, the Bear mascot falling over after the big miss was the best of the playoffs so far. Second are the Bear fans trying to kick that field goal. Can have fun an laugh whats the point of all this.
