One now-former Bears coach texted for several: Looking for work.
Along with defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli declining a chance to remain on new head coach Marc Trestmans staff, quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates, receivers coach Darryl Drake, offensive line coach Tim Holt and offensive coordinator Mike Tice have been turned out by the Bears in a near total staff makeover.
Defensive backs coach Jon Hoke remained under consideration for the defensive coordinator spot as of late Thursday.
Trestmans first hire was Aaron Kromer as offensive coordinator. Kromer also will handle the offensive line, formerly the province of Tice in 2010-11 and Holt last year.
