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.
