Chicago Bears hire Reggie Herring as their next linebackers coach

The Chicago Bears will bring on Reggie Herring to take over as the club’s linebackers coach as the replacement for the recently fired Tim Tibesar, according to Fox Sports.

Herring had spent the previous three seasons coaching linebackers for Houston, but he was a part of a defensive staff purge that took place three days after the Texans hired Bill O’Brien as their new head coach.

Naturally, Herring’s background as a linebackers coach on teams that play 3-4 defensive fronts (Dallas from 2008-10, and two stints with the Texans from 2002-03 and 2011-13) leads to speculation the Bears could be considering making the transition away from their 4-3 defense. But it would be premature to make that assumption given the team’s current personnel, and the fact the Bears haven’t yet added players that could assimilate to a 3-4 front.

This is a great hire by the Bears, Herring is a very solid linebackers coach, that will be perfect for the younger guys on the Bears defense.
