Looks like this moved pretty fast.

I like the hire. Has been around for a while and always put together a solid defensive unit with inferior talent. I think we all believe that he can do great things with the talent we currently have.

Yea just saw a tweet from Biggs saying that as well. Possible that JLC is jumping the gun here in his never ending quest to become Adam Schefter. Feel free to lock this up if necessary.

Well if it is true, we have a scary-looking guy coaching our defense:

Three league sources say #Bears are finalizing a deal with Mel Tucker to be the next defensive coordinator. @JasonLaCanfora had it first


Jensen seems to think its legit. Honestly I hope it is; Tucker was my first choice.

Jensen also said Rod M was staying...


But MCW, who has history with Tucker, is confirming it now as well.

No Jensen said Trestman wanted to retain Rod...which I believe he did...he never said Rod was going to stay.

Very happy with this hire. Hopefully it is confirmed. Multiple people on Twitter seem to agree.

True Laughing...

The only issue is Tuckers background is as a DB coach...hope this doesn't mean Hoke & Byrd are going.

I do hope that Hoke, Byrd and Phair all end up staying, but I guess we'll see how it plays out. I think the vets on this team deserve some continuity. It also just makes sense from a chemistry standpoint to keep some of the gang together.
