Assessing, developing, and utilizing gifted young players or coaches hasnt been their strength. Perhaps this move will reveal improvement there.

Congrats to Sean Desai on becoming the next Bears Defensive Coordinator. Desai is the male– my novice year he drew the cards for the scout defense i think. Fantastic opportunity for Sean Desai, and I like the idea of the Bears offering someone they consider a young, increasing star a chance. Delighted for Sean Desai! As you can see by former gamers, Desai is extremely well appreciated within the company.
This is the first Bears move I have actually liked in… https://t.co/BMdblCKJn9

Desai is the guy– my rookie year he drew the cards for the scout defense i think. He then ran scout conferences– worked his way up. Constantly the very same person too

Thrilled for Sean Desai! We shared a small office at Temple together. Total stud coach. 2 offices beside us were Ryan Day and Matt Rhule. Easy to choose the stars in this occupation and imposters. Hard working, knowledgeable, relationships matter and they can flat out teach. https://t.co/KFhyaR06oc

HUGE hire for the Chicago Bears. Congrats to Sean Desai on ending up being the next Bears Defensive Coordinator. Theyve got some holes fill at D line coach and offending skill coaches, however this is a step in the ideal direction. Expect more of what you saw in 2018 but w/ his own flavor

No pressure, Desai.
Everybody is on the hot spot, defense is all you, a wide range of starters in their 30s, and were set to spend more cash on defense than any other NFL group so you need to be Top 5. Deal? Deal. https://t.co/QC2cE6IQLz
