In what will be his third season in the NFL, former Seattle Seahawks TE coach Mike DeBord has been hired to fill the vacancy created when Rob Boras was fired following the 2009 season.  DeBord spent the majority of his coaching career at Michigan and Central Michigan in the NCAA ranks.  From the Bears official site:

This past season DeBord, 53, tutored second-year tight end John Carlson, who caught 51 passes for 574 yards and a team-leading 7 touchdowns.

Besides the fact that he looks like George Bluth from Arrested Development, what are your thoughts on this hire?
