The Chicago Bears have made an interesting addition to their coaching staff, hiring former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Griffin as an assistant coach. Griffin will be tasked with coaching both quarterbacks and wide receivers, adding his expertise to the team's offensive development.

A Santa Monica native, Griffin had a brief stint in the NFL, appearing in two games for the Buccaneers during the 2019 season. Prior to his professional career, he played college football at Tulane University, where he showcased his skills by throwing for over 9,000 yards and 56 touchdowns over four seasons.

With the Bears holding the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft and potentially eyeing a franchise quarterback, Griffin's experience as a former quarterback could prove invaluable in developing the team's new signal-caller. Additionally, his insights into the passing game could benefit the wide receivers as well.

Despite finishing with a 7-10 record in 2023, the Bears are optimistic about their future. Led by standout wide receiver D.J. Moore and bolstered by the addition of defensive lineman Montez Sweat, the team believes they are on the cusp of contention. With the right pieces in place, including a top-tier quarterback, the Bears aim to end their playoff drought and compete at a high level once again.
