The Bears were denied permission to speak to Tennessee Titans quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains, a league source said.
The Bears are looking for a passing game coordinator/ quarterbacks coach to pair with newly appointed offensive coordinator Mike Tice, who will also have significant input on the offensive line. The Bears are also still planning to hire an offensive line coach to help him.
Jeremy Bates and Jedd Fisch could also be candidates to fill the quarterbacks/ passing game coordinator position.
Loggains knows Bears quarterback Jay Cutler from Vanderbilt. Loggains, though, is well thought of by the Titans, helping Matt Hasselbeck make a smooth transition as a free agent in 2011 and also helping develop rookie Jake Locker.
