When the Chicago Bears head to Miami, Mitch Trubisky will taking on the offensive coordinator who drafted him last season
The Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears have a weird inner-working of ties to each other’s franchises right now. Of course, all Chicago Bears fan know Adam Gase. Gase was the offensive coordinator that John Fox brought over from Denver to Chicago with his hiring.
Unfortunately, Gase left after just one season to accept the Miami Dolphins job, A lot of Bears fans debate whether or not they should have just promoted Gase to give Fox the boot. However, it was assumed that Gase would not push over Fox like that, even if he had interest in the job.
Nonetheless, this has led to Gase bringing in some names from the John Fox regime through the past couple of seasons. This makes sense; it happens everywhere.
However, one name that will stand out more than any other is Dowell Loggains, the first year offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins. Of course, Loggains was the person who stepped up as the offensive coordinator in Chicago when Gase left.

Chicago Bears fan know this and know that there is a good reason as to why Loggains time in Chicago was not extended.
Still, Gase is now calling the plays in Miami, and in this situation, it will be interesting to see if Loggains can have some good use regarding a scouting report on Mitch Trubisky.
Regarding time spent together, Dave Ragone is the only NFL who has done that more than Loggains. Loggains was the offensive coordinator when the team pulled the trigger to draft Trubisky. He knows every single tell that Trubisky has.
These types of situations happen all of the time; it is the gamesmanship of football. However, in this particular situation, it will be a fun watch.
Keep in mind; Matt Nagy was very interested in Trubisky before the draft as well. He also should be looked at as a better coach. While Loggains spent more time with Trubisky, Trubisky has told Nagy what Loggains has used to teach Trubisky.
Nagy could know the areas in which Loggains will want to attack. It will be an exciting cat and mouse game as Trubisky will have a chance to show his offensive coordinator that he is better off without him.
