According to Agency 1 Sports, the Chicago Bears have finally added James Rowe to their defensive staff. This move has been expected since last week, and considering Rowe is repped by Agency 1 Sports, it’s safe to say it’s a done deal. Update: The Bears have announced the addition and they did so with the title of defensive backs coach for Rowe.

Rowe has 15 years experience coaching, including 4 in the NFL. Last year was his first with the Indianapolis Colts, but he spent 2017-2019 as the Washington Football Team’s assistant DB coach. For a nice profile on Rowe, be sure to check out this article from our sister site that covers the Colts, Stampede Blue.

While most of Rowe’s coaching experience has been spent working with the cornerbacks, he’s also coached wide receivers at Jacksonville University in 2013, was their defensive coordinator in 2014, and his first coaching job was as the Offensive Coordinator/Quarterbacks coach at Cocoa (FL) High School from 2007 to 2010.
