Ex-Bears LB coach Lee interviews with Detroit, Tampa Bay

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Lloyd Lee, the ex-Bears linebackers coach, could be moving close to securing a new job.

He has interviewed for a position with the Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jim Schwartz is working to put together his staff in Detroit and the staff in Tampa is being remolded after Raheem Norris was promoted from defensive coordinator to head coach following the surprise firing of Jon Gruden.

Lee served as the Bears' linebackers coach for one season but was an original member of Lovie Smith's staff that came in in 2004. Lee previously served as a quality control coach, defensive assistant and he also worked with the nickel backs in 2007. Lee was fired more than a week after the season ended. Currently, Joe Barry, the former Lions' defensive coordinator, is the linebackers coach in Tampa. For three seasons before joining the Bears, Lee was a pro scout for the Buccaneers.

Lee is the last Bears' assistant without a job. Steve Wilks was hired in San Diego as the secondary coach and Brick Haley took a job at LSU as the defensive line coach.

Lee was an OK linebacker coach and I know he got a lot more experience with the Bears, so good luck where ever he go. But to Lovie, please give Babich his title back as linebacker coach and please consider hiring Ron Meeks now that he's avaible as your D-coordinator. You need to be our coach for the Super Bowl next year please don't leave Ron Turner with the job of having to run the offence by his self. Meek did a great job in Indy and he worked under Dungy. Please Lovie, you went after Ron now Meeks is out there.
Go Bears
