On Thursday the Chicago Bears officially announced the additions of Andrew Janocko as quarterbacks coach, Tyke Tolbert as their passing game coordinator/wide receivers coach, and David Overstreet II as assistant defensive backs coach.
Overstreet was a undrafted free agent of the Bears back in 2007 after starting for 4 years at the University of Missouri, but he didn’t stick on Chicago’s roster due to a lingering knee injury. While at Missouri his defensive coordinator was current Bears head coach Matt Eberflus. Overstreet first began coaching football in 2015 and he was a part of Eberflus’ first defensive coaching staff in 2018 with the Colts. He was a quality control coach until 2020 and then he was promoted to assistant defensive backs coach in 2021, a position he’ll continue with in Chicago.
