INDIANAPOLIS—The Bears wasted little time in filling their coaching vacancy.

Chris Tabor will sign a contract later today as the new assistant special teams coach, replacing Kevin O’Dea, who left Wednesday to become the special teams coach for the New York Jets.

Tabor comes from Western Michigan and worked previously with special teams coach Dave Toub at the University of Missouri. He interviewed with coach Lovie Smith Wednesday night.

Smith will be at the podium in five minutes. Check back for details.

Wow, that was quick. Looks like the Bears want to have all their focus on the combine.

Sounds like a tough gig for Tabor. Devin....catch and now run very fast. Hey 3rd string linebacker.....block that guy until you hear a whistle and then run off of the field.

Looks as if The Lovie Boat has got everything all mapped out. They hire an assistant spec. teams coach which they were number 1 in the NFL, but nothing else. Wonder if Angeloose is that on the ball.

The bear's have added a very good coach in Tabor. He is one of the best at the college level and will make his mark on the nfl. He is one of the most knowledgable coaches in the industry and has the tools to be an outstanding coach in the nfl. Best of Luck to him and his family. The bears have made a great addition to a very good staff.
