Chicago Bears complete coaching staff for 2022 season

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus completed his coaching staff ahead of the 2022 offseason. Every position coordinator and coach is now in place.

On defense, Chicago’s coaching staff features many familiar faces from Eberflus’ days with the Indianapolis Colts, which should provide good continuity and understanding on defense. Especially with defensive coordinator Alan Williams.

The offensive coaching staff has many assistant coaches that offensive coordinator Luke Getsy knows well. It shows that Eberflus is giving Getsy control of the attacking side of the ball.
