Bears expected to hire Chris Tabor as special teams coordinator

Bears coach Matt Nagy thanks Alex Smith Andy Reid in introductory presser

Notre Dame finished seventh in the nation in rushing yards per game with 269.3 yards on the ground per game. Since then, he's coached offensive lines at Tennessee (2010-11) and Notre Dame (2012-17).

Hiestand most recently worked with OG Quenton Nelson, an All-American and likely high first-round pick in the 2018 Draft, and OT Mike McGlinchey, a two-time team captain and 2016 All-American who's also likely to be a first-round pick in April.

The exodus reportedly continued Wednesday from what very well could have been regarded as one of the best - if not the best, from top to bottom - coaching staffs that Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly had put together in his eight seasons in South Bend.

"I was fortunate to have the honor of coaching the offensive line at Notre Dame for the past six years", Hiestand said in a statement. "He developed young men in the spirit of Notre Dame. "(University president) Father (John I.) Jenkins and (athletic director) Jack Swarbrick asked us to do more than simply coach football. Harry was an excellent caretaker to that standard. I loved that challenge.

"While disappointed to see Harry go, I'm not surprised by his decision".

"It adds that much more knowing how important coach Hiestand is to us and the relationship that we have with him", Notre Dame senior left tackle Mike McGlinchey said.

"I'm thankful to Coach Kelly for letting me coach my way".

Before the Citrus Bowl, 36-year-old offensive coordinator. "You won't find a harder-working, better prepared group than that offensive line". He was promoted to the role of assistant head coach while with IL from 2000-04, but has moved back into his niche of coaching the line.

The Bears don't have to hire a coach with a 3-4 background because their personnel is flexible and Nagy isn't married to a specific base defense.
