Browns set to hire Tabor away from Bears

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

A source has confirmed a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Cleveland Browns are set to hire Bears' assistant special teams coach Chris Tabor.

No big surprise here. The Bears' have perhaps the best special teams coach in the league in Dave Toub. It's only logical that teams would want to hire the man who has been his right hand for the past two years.

"I believe that Chris is one of the up and coming special teams coaches in this league," Browns head coach Pat Shurmur told the team's website. "He is smart, enthusiastic and has a true passion for this area of the game. In Chris' three years with the Bears, they consistently boasted one of the best special teams groups in the league, in just about every facet. Having faced them in 2008 and 2009, I know what a challenge it was to go up against their unit. He will be a valuable addition to our coaching staff."

Trained by the best.

Any word or rumors on teams sniffing around Tice for an OC job? Rod did a better job as a OC than as a line coach. Tice seems like he would really fit in well as a OC for a running team like the Titans, Bengals, teams like that all seem like he would fit in there. Worked with a garbage line this year and actually managed to improve the run game.

I could even see him leaving to be a line coach someplace else that features a running game and has actual talent on the line to work with.
