Tice Named Offensive Line Coach

| January 15th, 2010

From PFT:

One of Florio’s favorite coaches is choosing to make a lateral move to Chicago.

Mike Tice will leave his job as assistant head coach/ tight ends in Jacksonville for Chicago, where he will be the offensive line coach.  There was thought Tice may have been interviewing with the Bears for their vacant offensive coordinator position.

Tice was believed to be an ally of Jack Del Rio’s in Jacksonville, and it sounds like he needs it

Tice’s departure, technically for a downgrade in title, is just another hint at potential lingering weirdness in Jacksonville.

Tice was an awful head coach but he’s a great offensive line coach.  I do find it strange, however, that the Bears are assembling an offensive coaching staff without a coordinator in place.
