Earlier today, Adam Caplan of VSporto and SiriusXM radio dropped some Chicago Bears assistant coaching nuggets. The biggest of which was that they were hiring Brad Childress as an offensive consultant. Our own Jacob Infante tells us all about that move right here.

Caplan also reported that the Bears are expected to add Bill Shuey as a defensive assistant, and Brian Ginn as an offensive assistant.

New Bears head coach Matt Nagy worked with Shuey in Philadelphia under Andy Reid, and he went to school with Ginn at the University of Delaware.

Shuey spent a few years as the defensive coordinator at Widener University after his time in Philadelphia. In Philly, Shuey was the offensive quality control coach from 2003 to 2006 before moving to the defensive side of the ball and becoming a defensive quality control coach in 2007. In 2008 he was promoted to linebackers coach under defensive coordinator Jim Johnson, and he kept that title for two more years under defensive coordinator Sean McDermott.

Ginn, a quarterback for the Blue Hens with Nagy, has coached for 17 years at his alma mater. During his time there he has coached the running backs, the receivers, the quarterbacks, and the tight ends. He has also spent a season as their offensive coordinator and four seasons as their passing game coordinator.

What are your thoughts on these latest reported hires?

I really like what the Bears are doing.
