Bears promote Dowell Loggains to offensive coordinator
The Chicago Bears have promoted Dowell Loggains from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator. Loggains replaces Adam Gase, the Miami Dolphins' new head coach. In his first season with the Bears, quarterback Jay Cutler had a career-high 92.3 passer rating and went from 18 interceptions down to 11 interceptions. "Dowell played a critical role on our offense last year," coach John Fox said. "He's an excellent coach with experience as a play-caller and a broad knowledge of offensive football. He has earned the respect of our players because they know he can help them get better. "As I mentioned at the end of the season, our systems are in place. We will always look to evolve because the NFL is fluid and adapting is key to good coaching. Dowell will help us build on what we started as we head into the 2016 season."
