Bears hire Jay Rodgers as defensive line coach

The Chicago Bears have hired Jay Rodgers as their new defensive line coach.

He comes from the Denver Broncos, joining new Bears coach John Fox.

Rodgers was the Broncos' defensive line coach for the past three years.

He coached Pro Bowl defensive ends DeMarcus Ware and Elvis Dumervil. The Broncos led the NFL in rushing defense and finished fourth with 134 sacks during that span.
