The Bears announce that they will keep the coaching staff in tact for the 2014 season with two exceptions. Defensive line coach Mike Phair and linebacker coach Tim Tibesar were the only two coaches relieved of their duties after an abysmal 2013 season from both positional groups.
Phair was a holdover from the Lovie Smith era and was DL coach since 2011. Tibesar worked with Trestman in Montreal from 2009-2011 as his defensive coordinator, and only served one year for the Bears.
That means that defensive coordinator Mel Tucker will get another year with the Bears to improve the worst run defense in NFL history.
