Hardy Nickerson Steps Down

After one season as the Bears linebackers coach, former Buc Hardy Nickerson has resigned from the position.

"Hardy did a good job for us," Smith told the team's Web site. "He expressed how difficult this decision was, but he felt it was best for him and his family at this time. I certainly understand his decision and wish him and his family the best."

With Nickerson's resignation, the Bears will have their fourth linebackers coach in 8 seasons.  That number seems odd considering the talent and success we have had at that position during that time frame.  Granted Babich received a promotion when he moved out of the role.
