The Chicago Bears are working tirelessly to fill out their coaching staff. Andrew Janocko is the latest addition to Matt Eberflus’ staff and he’ll work alongside offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. Janocko will serve as the Bears’ quarterbacks coach.

Janocko spent last season as the Vikings’ QB coach and also worked with Justin Jefferson, in 2020, during his rookie season. With Janocko’s advisement, Jefferson went off for 1,400 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. Fellow Minnesota receiver Adam Thielen finished the 2020 NFL season with a career-high 14 touchdowns.

Throughout his nine years of NFL experience, Janocko’s teams have had multiple layers of success. He helped quarterback Sam Bradford set a new NFL record in completion percentage at 71.6% in 2016. The Vikings’ rushing offense ranked dead last in 2016 but rose to the seventh overall just a year later, thanks in part to Janocko’s multitude of assistance.

Andrew Janocko worked with not only the quarterbacks and receivers but also the offensive line. His diverse skill set will only benefit the Bears. The new coaching staff will have full autonomy over the offense and Justin Fields will benefit from the variety. The Chicago Bears bringing in Andrew Janocko to the organization is a logical move because of his ties to Luke Getsy. But their combined familiarity with the NFC North could be even more beneficial.
