New Bears head coach Marc Trestman has hired former Bears offensive coordinator Matt Cavanaugh as his quarterbacks coach and Skip Peete as his running backs coach.
Cavanaugh, who was the New York Jets' quarterbacks coach the past four seasons, was the Bears' offensive coordinator under Dave Wannstedt in 1997-98 when the Bears were in a constant state of flux at quarterback (Erik Kramer, Rick Mirer, Steve Stenstrom, Moses Moreno) and finished 17th (1997) and 21st (1998) in total offense.
After leaving the Bears, he became the offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens (1999-2004) under Brian Billick and won the Super Bowl in 2000 with Trent Dilfer at quarterback. He was the offensive coordinator for Wannstedt at Pitt (2005-08) before joining the Jets. Under Cavanaugh's tutelage, Mark Sanchez became only the fifth quarterback in the Super Bowl era to win 30 games (including the postseason) in his first three seasons -- with four road victories in the playoffs, tied for the second-most in NFL history.
Peete has been the Cowboys' running backs coach since 2007. He was a running backs coach with the Oakland Raiders from 1998-2006, overlapping with Trestman's three-year tenure as offensive coordinator from 2001-03 -- including the 2002 season when the Raiders won the AFC championship and played in the Super Bowl.
