Chicago Bears add to coaching staff

Chicago Bears add to coaching staff
Chris Harris back with the Bears.

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:

The main position yet to be filled/announced is wide receivers coach.
