Bears promote two, hire one scout

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

With Chris Ballard and Ted Monago moving on to other teams for promotions, the Bears opted to promote two of their own late Monday.

The Bears promoted Kevin Turks to director of pro personnel and Dwayne Joseph to associate director of pro personnel.

Their promotions come after Ballard and Monago, two longtime scouts for the team, left to the organization. Ballard, the Bears' previous director of pro scouting, left to be the Kansas City Chiefs' director of player personnel. Monago, previously an executive scout for the Bears in charge of scouting the very important SEC, joined the St. Louis Rams' as a national scout.

Turks has been with the Bears since 2001. He was named a pro scout a year later and became assistant director of pro personnel in 2008.

Joseph, who played cornerback for the Bears in 1995, was named the team's assistant director of pro scouting last June. Before that, he was the Bears' director of player development.

The Bears also hired Ryan Kessenich as a scout. Kessenich was an area scout for the Kansas City Chiefs the past four seasons.
