Dave Toub will not return to Chicago Bears in 2013

USA TODAY Sports

Long-time special teams coach Dave Toub will not return to the Chicago Bears in 2013.

While no official announcement has been made, Brad Biggs at the Chicago Tribune is reporting that Dave Toub will not return as the Chicago Bears special teams coach in 2013. He is expected to join Andy Reid, who gave Toub his first NFL job in 2001, in Kansas City.

UPDATE: Dave Toub has been officially named special teams coach by the Chiefs.

Dave Toub was among the baker's dozen of candidates for the Bears vacant head coach position, but there were never indications that he would be brought in for a second round of interviews with ownership.

Under Toub's watch, the Chicago Bears were among the league's elite in special teams units, and Bears fans know quite well that during the last nine season, many games were outright decided by kickoff or punt returns.

After head coach Lovie Smith was relieved of his duties, Devin Hester stated that he was contemplating retirement because his heart wasn't in the game the way it used to be. With Toub departing, Hester's decision may be a little easier to make.

Stay tuned...
