Tice stays as Bears offensive coordinator

Updated: Monday, Jan. 23 at 7:35 p.m.

Mike Tices work with the Bears offensive line over the past two seasons and his contributions to successful in-season modifications of the offense have not gone unnoticed.

At least for the Bears sake now, they have not gone to Oakland.

Tice, elevated to offensive coordinator after the departure of Mike Martz, will not interview for the Raiders head-coaching position at Senior Bowl practices as previously scheduled.

The Raiders have begun their cycle of second interviews under new general manager Reggie McKenzie, hired away from the Green Bay Packers.

Tice now is expected to dial up the search process for a passing-game coordinator and likely a quarterbacks coach, although those two jobs could be combined under the right individual.

As part of our coverage leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft we will provide profiles of more than 100 prospects, including a scouting report and video interviews with each player.

Larry Ogunjobi, DL, Charlotte

6'3" | 305 lbs.

2016 stats:

65 tackles, 13.5 TFL, 3 sacks

Projection:

Second round

Scouting Report:

"Watching Ogunjobi play is like watching a more raw version of Sheldon Rankins and with a little less efficiency of movement. Like Rankins, Ogunjabi uses leverage, quickness, and strong hands to counter his average size. Size and below-average length will work against him for some teams, but others who covet disruptive defensive tackles who can play in the backfield and generate some pressure will be studying him closely. Has starting NFL potential." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

As part of our coverage leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft we will provide profiles of more than 100 prospects, including a scouting report and video interviews with each player.

Chad Hansen, WR, California

6'2" | 202 lbs.

2016 stats:

92 receptions, 1,248 yards, 11 TD

Projection:

Third round

Scouting Report:

"Hansen has good combination of size and speed for the perimeter with an ability to climb over the top of cornerbacks and win the deep ball. He has average separation quickness when asked to work the first two levels, but he has the hands and strength to handle contested catch situations. An ascending prospect in draft circles who should hear his name called on Day 2 (Rounds 2-3) of the daft with a chance to become a WR2." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
