The Chicago Bears are likely to have their quietest off season in the previous few years. This of course is under the assumption that they are not going to make a Jay Cutler or Julius Peppers size splash in free agency.

The Bears take a step to ensure that there is as little turnover as possible. They have announced the extension of offensive line coach Mike Tice for an additional year. The Bears had previously denied the Tennessee Titans the right to interview Tice for their offensive coordinator spot.

The Bears have also extended three other assistant coaches. Those are running backs coach Tim Spencer, linebackers coach Bob Babich and secondary coach Jon Hoke.
