Browns special teams coach Chris Tabor expected to take Chicago Bears job

Bettcher has been with the Cardinals for five seasons, the last three as defensive coordinator. Linebackers coach Clark Lea was promoted as his replacement.

Hiestand, 59, served as the Bears offensive line coach from 2005-09 and since has had a terrific run at Tennessee and in South Bend, Ind.

It will be curious to see with Hiestand on the staff if the Bears are swayed to take one of the two Notre Dame offensive linemen with the 8th overall pick in the first round. Last season his Fighting Irish unit won the Joe Moore Award, which honors the top offensive line in the country. "I'm also appreciative of the offensive linemen for being the best part of every day here and working extremely hard to be the best". The unit has had four offensive linemen drafted in the top three rounds in the National Football League since 2013 and is expected to have two more players selected in this year's draft.

Both changes are sure to be painful for the Notre Dame program, as Elko and Hiestand were the two most acclaimed and experienced coaches that Kelly had been able to bring into his program. I know this was a hard decision for him based upon his feelings for this program, this University and his student-athletes.

Before joining the Bears, Hiestand spent eight seasons at IL (1997-2004) under Ron Turner and developed six linemen who were drafted, including David Diehl and Tony Pashos. Harry was an excellent caretaker to that standard. "We knew six years ago when we hired him that his final step in coaching could be in the National Football League". Because Nagy will be calling his own plays, offensive line coach is right up there with quarterbacks coach as the most important staff hire he'll make on offense.
