Bears retain Mike Groh as receivers coach
The Chicago Bears have retained Mike Groh as receivers coach.
Groh was receivers coach under former coach Marc Trestman.
The Bears have had three 1,000-yard receiving seasons under Groh, twice with Alshon Jeffery and another with Brandon Marshall.
Over the last two seasons, Jeffery is fifth in the NFL in receiving yards (2,554), ninth in receptions (174) and tied for ninth in receiving touchdowns (17).
In 2013, Marshall and Jeffery became the first receivers in Bears history to each top 1,100 yards in a season and the team’s first pair of wideouts to both be selected to the Pro Bowl in the same year.
Groh was a starting quarterback at Virginia. Groh has coached at Virginia, the New York Jets and Alabama.
