General

After a week and a half of searching and interviewing numerous candidates, the Chicago Bears named safeties coach Sean Desai as their new defensive coordinator on Friday, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Desai has been with the team since 2013 and replaces Chuck Pagano, who retired after leading the Bears defense for two seasons. The man nicknamed “Doc” spent six years as the team’s quality control assistant before being promoted to the safeties coach in 2019.

Desai won the job over other candidates such as Dallas Cowboys assistant George Edwards, former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher, Indianapolis Colts secondary coach Jonathon Gannon and Bears legend Mike Singletary.

The news drew plenty of reactions on Friday afternoon as many former players, fans, and analysts shared their thoughts on the new Bears defensive coordinator.
