The Chicago Bears have decided to promote from within as Sean Desai becomes the third defensive coordinator under Matt Nagy.

The Bears, after doing their due diligence by interviewing potential candidates across the country that were at different stages of their careers, decided that the best man to lead the team’s defense was right under their nose the entire time.

In this episode of The Chicago Audible, Will DeWitt and Nicholas Moreano share why they believe Desai receiving this promotion was ultimately the right move including Desai’s background in education, how he should be positioned to provide the
“spark” that was missing from the defense since Fangio left, how the defense will look different (with an inside scoop from ESPN’s Matt Bowen), and much more including the importance of retaining promising in-house talent like Desai.
