After weeks of interviews and speculation, the Chicago Bears finally found a replacement for Chuck Pagano. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the team is expected to hire safeties coach Sean Desai to take over as defensive coordinator.

Desai, who has been with the team since 2013, served as a quality control assistant. Once Chuck Pagano was hired in 2018, Desai took over as safeties coach, a role he has served in since. Desai will be the first coordinator of Indian descent in NFL history. He will certainly have his hands full filling out the rest of the staff with longtime defensive line coach Jay Rodgers taking a job with the LA Chargers.
