    Tucker known for getting most out of available talent
    MOBILE, Ala. — "Relentless equals high velocity, nonstop." That coaching slogan sure sounds like it could have come out of the Rod Marinelli book of wisdom. But it didn't. It is the motto of the new Bears defensive coordinator, not the old....
  • Lack of diversity still big problem in NFL

     Lack of diversity still big problem in NFL
    One longtime acquaintance on an NFL coaching staff called with a rhetorical question that pops into my head whenever somebody mentions the league's problem hiring African-American head coaches. "Do you know how hard it is to win 10 games in the NFL?''...
  • Bears and Urlacher need each other

    Bears and Urlacher need each other
    Speaking to a small circle of reporters last week inside the Walter Payton Center at Halas Hall, Bears coach Marc Trestman struggled to be heard by anybody not close enough to read the label on his glasses. Trestman's voice didn't carry strongly...
  • Bears position analysis: Wide receiver

    Bears position analysis: Wide receiver
    General manager Phil Emery was on the job for less than two months when he accomplished something Jerry Angelo failed to do in more than a decade — acquire a legitimate No. 1 wide receiver. The addition of Brandon Marshall in a trade with the...
  • New defensive coordinator surprisingly selling continuity

    New defensive coordinator surprisingly selling continuity
    New coaches sell change the way politicians sell hope. It is their snake oil, and they often find desperate customers in their teams' executive offices as well as in the stands of the stadiums they call home. It is what new coaches do because that's...
  • Rooney Rule advocate hoping to expand opportunities for black coaches

    Rooney Rule advocate hoping to expand opportunities for black coaches
    Luck, as the saying goes, is when opportunity meets preparation. Opportunity, as I like to say, is when lucky people meet good professional networks. NFL coaching and management jobs are for the luckiest and most well-connected football minds, which...
  • Singletary mucks up coach search

    Singletary mucks up coach search
    Leave Phil Emery alone. Let the Bears general manager do his job. Trust him. That is the message for whatever Halas Hall meddler coaxed Emery into adding Bears legend and Vikings linebacker coach Mike Singletary to the growing list of candidates for...
  • Show Emery some patience

    Show Emery some patience
    Be it positive or negative — and I expect more of the latter — there will be a handful of over-the-top reactions to Phil Emery's choice as the Bears new head coach once the GM finally pulls the trigger. I'm going to do my best to avoid the...
  • New deal for Cutler should be low on Bears priority list

    New deal for Cutler should be low on Bears priority list
    Speaking of streaks that interest Chicago, how many NFL quarterbacks in a row will sign a new contract and make Bears fans wonder how it affects Jay Cutler? The number could reach 31 and my answer regarding Cutler would remain the same: Not. One. Bit....
  • Philadelphia Eagles need much more than one coach

    Philadelphia Eagles need much more than one coach
    Doug Marrone wasted little time removing defensive coordinator Mike Pettine from the free-agent market after the Buffalo Bills wasted even less time hiring Marrone to be their head coach — before the Philadelphia Eagles could get to him. In...
  • Levy thinks Trestman perfect for Bears

    Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Marv Levy looks at current Bears candidate Marc Trestman and sees a replay of his own career path. "(Trestman) went as an assistant in the NFL up to Canada in Montreal. So did I," the Chicago native recalled Friday. "He...
  • Bowman on the clock

    Bowman on the clock
    Nothing marks the return of the Blackhawks like a bit of euphoria and a bout of amnesia. It also triggers a third thing but I forget what that is. The end of the NHL lockout in a city hungry for hockey immediately creates excitement that the Hawks can...
