Apparently the Bears have cut the media loose on the coaching staff during their weekend rookie camp after a long vacation away. Both head coach Mark Trestman and offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer were questioned closely about Kromer’s title change (he’s now just the offensive coordinator and Pat Meyer is the offensive line coach):
Both coaches emphasized the growth as coaches of both Kromer and Meyer as being the reason for the change. I’ve little doubt there’s some truth to that. But something tells me the change was hastened by the fact that Trestman feels the need to spend more time with the defense this season. That means both Kromer and Meyer have to take on more responsibility. How well they handle that responsibility will be yet another big factor in how successful the Bears are this year.
