Every offensive and defensive coach on the Bears' staff, with the exception of defensive backs coach Jon Hoke, has been released. I don't think Cutler's going to be too happy about Jeremy Bates' dismissal.
Not surprising that a new coach wants to bring in his own guys. The only surprise to me was Toub leaving early to take the exact same role in KC--I assume he saw the writing on the wall.
People complain about the same faces playing musical chairs around the league (who will forget the three-headed Martz/Tice/Marinelli monster?) so I hope this is a good break from that.
