The Bears have announced a new Run Game Coordinator!

Published February 22, 2024 at 3:54 PM

During this offseason, the Chicago Bears underwent significant changes in their offensive coaching staff, highlighted by the arrival of Shane Waldron as the new offensive coordinator. However, amidst the shake-up, one familiar face from the past two seasons is moving up the ranks for the upcoming 2024 campaign.

Head coach Matt Eberflus announced on Thursday, during a media briefing, the promotion of Offensive Line Coach Chris Morgan to the role of Run Game Coordinator. Over the past two seasons, Morgan has made a notable impact as the offensive line coach, particularly in his work with emerging talents like Braxton Jones, Teven Jenkins, and Darnell Wright. Despite changes elsewhere, Morgan, along with tight ends coach Jim Dray, remained with the team from the 2023 season. While continuing his duties with the offensive line, Morgan will collaborate with running backs coach Chad Morton and assistant running backs coach Jennifer King in enhancing the team's running game. It's worth noting that the Bears lacked a designated run game coordinator in the previous two seasons, despite leading the league in rushing yards per game in 2022 (177.3) and ranking second in 2023 (141.1 yards per game).

With Morgan's promotion, the Bears' coaching staff is nearing completion. Eberflus confirmed that the team is still searching for an assistant defensive line coach following Justin Hinds' departure to join the Seattle Seahawks as their defensive line coach.
