Bears name an OL coach

And that coach is former Tampa Bay coach Tim Holt.  That means Bob Bostad is staying, which is obviously great news.

    1. Great news indeed! This should provide the staff the focus for developing the players we have and heavily recruit a foundation for a sustainable future. Thanks for the post!

  3. Wrong tread but where are the two bigs together tonight? Its to late now but earlier they may have been effective working the boards etc.

    I guess it was to much to expect Dixon to not try and fit the square peg in the round hole two games in row.

  4. With all of the hoopla and doomsday scenarios posted throughout in here, I was just wondering if Sal Sunseri was a highly sought out coach in college football or simply a token of gratitude by Nick Saban (i.e., part fo the deal) for getting Sunseri, Jr. to sign at Alabama? My thought is that it was the latter and that too much speculation is put into the assistant coaching staff chatter.

    1. Sal coach under Saban at LSU so they knew each other.
      Sal joined Alabama for 2009 season... his son was a soph in HS so no truth of quid pro quo. His son was considering going to Pitt.
      vinnie was only a 3 star with offers from pitt, louisville, memphis. So not some highly sought after recruit.

  5. Sal Sunseri is a well respected coach in his own right.

  6. Excellent news...should be interesting to see what kind of OL recruits he can land for 2013.

  7. IMO this is only half of a good story. The great news would be that Bostad turned the job down. I appreciate that this may be too much to ask, but the last thing this team needs is to have OC's, DC's and coaches with one foot on the dock and the other in the boat.
    This staff needs to show its committment to showing results for the program before it starts looking for its next spot. Probably too much to ask, but if there is a God, I pray that we catch a break and this happens.
