Brad Childress, who was the Chicago Bears Offensive Analyst in 2018 and their Senior Offensive Assistant in 2019, has informed head coach Matt Nagy that he will not be returning to the coaching staff in 2020. This according to Cleveland Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot of in her recent article about Childress’ protege, new Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski.

The 63-year old Childress is undecided about taking on a similar assistant coaching role in Cleveland with Stefakski, “I haven’t been asked yet,’’ he told Cabot. “That’s not out of the question, but I doubt it pretty much. I think he’s (Stefanki) got his eye on some people that he has an interest in.’’

Childress leaving the Bears is just the latest in an offensive coaching turnover that has included a new offensive coordinator in Bill Lazor, who was just hired yesterday, tight end coach Clancy Barone, and offensive line coach Juan Castillo.

It’s unknown at this time if Nagy and the Bears will look to add another offensive assistant to their staff to replace Childress or if they’ll look to add an assistant special teams coach to replace the recently fired Brock Olivo, but if they make any other changes to the coaching staff we’ll cover it right here at WCG.

What are your thoughts on this offensive coaching shuffle so far?
