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.
The Bears have also announced that Henry Burris was being promoted to an offensive quality control coach. Burris started with the Bears last offseason thanks to the Bill Walsh Diversity Fellowship program, but they liked the job he did in camp so well that they hired him on as an offensive assistant for the entire 2020 season. Burris played one year for the Bears before leaving to become one of the greatest Canadian Football League quarterbacks of all time.
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.
