The Chicago Bears confirmed the additions of Tim Tibesar as linebackers coach, and Brendan Nugent and Carson Walch as offensive quality control coaches on Tuesday.
Earlier in the week, the team announced Sean Desai and former Bears’ safety Chris Harris as defensive quality control assistants, and Dwayne Stukes as assistant special teams coach.
Since the hires, I’ve been asked just what the role of a “quality control” coach is. As best as I can explain it to you, the main role is film study. They serve as, essentially, paid interns, learning from coordinators and position coaches, while breaking down internal personnel and opponent film. Among other things.
The Bears’ current coaching staff looks like this:
- Marc Trestman, Head Coach
- Joe DeCamillis, Special Teams Coordinator/Assistant Head Coach
- Aaron Kromer, Offensive Coordinator/Offensive Line
- Mel Tucker, Defensive Coordinator
- Jim Arthur, Strength and Conditioning Coach
- Andy Bischoff, Tight Ends
- Matt Cavanaugh, Quarterbacks
- Mike Clark, Strength and Conditioning Coordinator
- Sean Desai, Defensive Quality Control
- Chris Harris, Defensive Quality Control
- Jon Hoke, Defensive Backs
- Pat Meyer, Assistant Offensive Line
- Brendan Nugent, Offensive Quality Control
- Skip Peete, Running Backs
- Mike Phair, Defensive Line
- Michael Sinclair, Assistant Defensive Line
- Dwayne Stukes, Assistant Special Teams
- Tim Tibesar, Linebackers
- Carson Walch, Offensive Quality Control
The main position yet to be filled/announced is wide receivers coach.
