On Friday the Chicago Bears announced that they were promoting Bill Shuey to fill the role of outside linebackers coach.

Shuey has been with the Bears since 2018 when they hired him as a defensive quality control assistant. That season he worked with the inside linebackers, defensive line, and special teams. From 2019 to 2020 he served as their pass rush analyst/assistant linebackers coach.

Before joining the Bears he coached in the college ranks at Widener University (2014-17) and at West Chester (2012-13) University. Shuey wore a lot of hats at Widener working as their assistant head coach, defensive coordinator, co-special teams coordinator, secondary coach, and recruiting coordinator. His two years at West Chester were spent with the linebackers.

From 2001 to 2010 he coached with the Philadelphia Eagles in various roles including linebackers coach for three years and an offensive quality control coach for four. It was in Philadelphia working for Andy Reid where he was on staff with current Bears head coach Matt Nagy.

The Bears are down to just three open coaching spots from what they had in 2020, with vacancies at safeties coach, running back coach, and passing game coordinator.
