The Bears announced that Kevin O'Dea has replaced Chris Tabor as assistant special teams caoch.
O'Dea held the same position with the Bears during the 2006-07 season, when the Bears' special teams ranked No. 1 in the league in the special teams ranking systems compiled by Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News. O'Dea was special teams coordinator of the New York Jets in 2008 and 2009 before serving in the same capacity with the UFL's Hartford Colonials last season.
Tabor was named the Cleveland Browns special teams coordinator Tuesday.
