The Chicago Bears add Charles London and Chris Tabor to the coaching staff.

Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy remain busy as they continue to work on building a new coaching staff around the new head coach. The Chicago Bears reportedly have added two more assistant coaches into the mix.

According to Alex Marvez of the Sporting News and SiriusXM NFL Radio, Nagy has hired his new running back coach.

London comes to the Bears from the Houston Texans where he was working with Lamar Miller. Before that, he was the running backs coach at Penn State. London’s first NFL coaching gig was actually with the Bears under Lovie Smith in 2007. Between the Bears and Penn State, he had a brief stop with the Tennessee Titans. London’s resume isn’t quite one like Stan Drayton when he came to the Bears a few years ago, but he still has shown success at his previous stops.

The other move, and probably the more significant one is that the Bears have also reportedly hired their special teams’ coordinator.

Tabor was met with more mixed reviews, but overall, many feel it’s a positive move for Chicago. Tabor was previously with the Bears from 2008 to 2010 as a special teams assistant under the beloved Dave Toub. He’s run the Browns’ special teams unit despite a change in head coaches multiple times, which shows the level of respect he had within the organization.

Overall, the Browns’ special teams stats were solid, but far from impressive. But at the same time, when a roster is weak, the depth is usually the weakest part, and those are the players that play special teams. If you ask Browns’ fans about Tabor, they will tap dance knowing he’s gone.

These names may not be the most exciting, but they should be solid additions to Nagy’s staff. The Bears are still working on bringing back Vic Fangio. With the addition of Harry Hiestand, the Bears potentially are showing early signs of putting together a solid staff.
