Looking at the young defense coaches, the Bears needed to start with defensive coach Jay Rodgers. Rodgers has been staffing since the John Fox era and it’s easy to see why the defensive line was one of the best units of the time.
Rodgers served as a defensive assistant / coach with Broncos from 2009-2014 before joining Fox in Chicago, where he served as the Bears defensive coach.
Although Rodgers doesn’t have the experience of being a defensive coordinator like the others on this list, everyone has to start somewhere. Watch Brandon Staley, a former Untraditional backer coach, step up as the Rams’ defensive coordinator. Chicago should consider Rodgers for the event.
