As the Chicago Bears work through the offseason with a new head coach and GM, the team is losing their special teams coordinator. According to reports, special teams coordinator Chris Tabor is on his way to Carolina to join the Panthers.
Tabor served as the Bears assistant special teams coach from 2008-2010. After leaving the organization, Tabor returned when Matt Nagy was hired as head coach to once again work with the special teams unit. However, Tabor is taking his talents south to join Matt Rhule and the Panthers.
Although Tabor is on his way out, the Bears are rumored to be interested in interim head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, Rich Bisaccia. Bisaccia was elevated to head coach after the Jon Gruden controversy earlier this season. He is in consideration for the role, but if he is not named permanent head coach, he could join the Bears’ staff.
The next couple weeks will be interesting for the Bears and their fans. With Ryan Poles and Matt Eberflus now running the organization, they have quite the challenge at hand. They’ll be responsible for building a great staff that can bring championships to the city of Chicago.
