Bears promote two offensive assistants

The coaching staff of the Chicago Bears is rounding into shape...

When the Chicago Bears officially announced that they were hiring Mike Pettine as a senior defensive assistant, they also announced two internal coaching promotions on the offensive side of the ball.

Mike Snyder, who has been with the Bears since 2018 as an offensive quality control coach, was promoted to get a slash in his title which now reads offensive quality control/assistant quarterbacks coach. Snyder has been coaching football in some capacity for over a decade, with each season spent on offense.

It was just earlier today that I Tweeted out that each NFL team should have an assistant quarterback coach on staff to work with the backup quarterbacks that don’t receive as many practice reps each week. Hopefully this is the year the Bears bring in a young prospect to work with on the practice squad, and if they do, he’ll have a couple coaches ready to work with him in Snyder and Burris.
