Developing quarterback Justin Fields is going to be a priority for the Bears heading into next season and the team has reportedly settled on the coach who will be working directly with Fields this year.

According to multiple reports, the Bears are expected to hire Andrew Janocko as their new quarterbacks coach. Janocko served in the same role with the Vikings last year and filled multiple roles on Minnesota’s staff after being hired in 2015.

Janocko played quarterback at the University of Pittsburgh while he was in college and Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy was a graduate assistant at the school in 2010.

The Bears are also expected to hire Tyke Tolbert as their wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator and Chris Morgan as their offensive line coach.

  1. Gotta do everything they can to develop the guy, but most likely outcome will be three long years of waiting for him to get better then a big turnover in coaching staff again.

  2. Vikings sure did a great job with Cousins right? Maybe he can teach Fields how to rack up stats in garbage time while losing games.

  3. Interview transcript: “So, we’ve got this kid that none of us picked but all of our jobs depend on him turning into a star. Ya up for it?”

  4. An entire staff of guys who have either:
    A. Never held these positions before
    B. Have had brief experience in their positions but sucked at it.
    C. Sat next to Eberflus at lunch in middle school.

    Coaches, I recommend renting, not buying.

  5. They may suspect Fields isn’t the guy so they see if they can do anything with him this year and if not, move on from him next year. Unfair as hell to Fields but you can’t wait around for guys to develop any more. I don’t think anybody really knows if he is “the” guy or not yet – I hope he is but I’m suspicious, given that the decision to draft him was made by Pace and Nagy. If this new management decides he is not what they think they need or want, I hope they move on from him quickly – for the teams benefit and Justin Fields benefit as well.

  6. Send him to kurt warners qb school so he can take the remedial classes. He needs it like yesterday.
