Yesterday the Chicago Bears announced some moves in their personnel department. They promoted Mark Sadowski to director of college scouting, Francis Saint Paul to national scout, David Williams to West Coast scout, Jeff King to pro scout and Chris White to pro scouting coordinator.
Sadowski replaced Joe Douglas, whom the Bears just allowed to leave for the Philadelphia Eagles where he'll serve as their vice president of player personnel.
A Chicago native, Sadowski has has 19 years of scouting experience with the New Orleans Saints (1998-2005) and the Bears (2005-16).
Saint Paul has been with the Bears since 2012 when he was hired as the team's West area scout. He has coaching experience from his time at Northern Arizona (2007-11) and he had a brief NFL career with the Rams (2001-02) including Super Bowl XXXVI, the Jacksonville Jaguars (2003) and Carolina Panthers (2003).
Williams also joined the Bears in 2012, but as a scouting assistant. He held the same job with the Kansas City Chiefs (2011). The past three seasons (2013-15) has served as a pro scout for the Bears.
King joined the Bears as a training camp/seasonal scouting intern in 2015 after an eight year NFL career at tight end with the Panthers (2006-10) and the Arizona Cardinals (2011-13).
White joined the Bears in 2014 as a scouting assistant and before that he worked as a football recruiting assistant at Florida State University (2013-14). His first NFL job was as an intern with the Detroit Lions during training camp of 2013.
