Tim Bream, who has been the Bears' head athletic trainer the last 14 seasons, is headed back to Penn State, according to a report.
Bream, born in Gettysburg, Pa., graduated from Penn State and earned his masters from Western Virginia University.
The report here said new Nittany Lions coach Bill O'Brien decided to part ways with George Salvaterra, who has been with the program since 1985.
"We have moved on from George, we've hired Tim Bream, he'll be the trainer and start here on Wednesday," O'Brien said, according to Lions 24/7. "He was the trainer for the Chicago Bears. I know him through NFL circles and through some people here at Penn State. He comes highly recommended and we're really excited about having him on board."
Bream worked for the Bears for 18 seasons. He also worked at Syracuse (1984-86), Vanderbilt (1986-88) and Richmond (1988-92) before joining the Bears as an assistant trainer.
