Chicago Bears add Skip Peete as running backs coach

Christian Petersen

New Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman is quickly adding to his coaching staff. Today another former Cowboy is hired.

As reported by Clarence Hill, beat writer for the Dallas Cowboys, the Chicago Bears have hired Skip Peete to be their running backs coach.

For the last seven years he's served in the same capacity for the Dallas Cowboys. Peete was fired from the Cowboys on January 7, 2013, after the Cowboys rushed for a franchise low 1,265 yards.

This is the second former Cowboy that Marc Trestman has hired after Joe DeCamillis was hired as assistant head coach / special teams coach.
