Coaching news still percolating for Bears

Former Bears wide receivers coach Darryl Drake is expected to move into that role on the staff of new Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians, a source told CSNChicago.com.

Former Bears safety Chris Harris finished his career last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. Now Tucker is Bears defensive coordinator and Harris is coming with him as a quality control assistant. Harris tweeted his retirement last weekend and Dan Pompei at the Tribune first reported Harris addition to the Bears staff.

With only two defensive-coordinator positions still open, Lovie Smith has been expected to sit out the 2013 season and likely return in 2014 to a head-coaching spot. Dallas has been at the top of the possibles list for Smith, given the tenuousness of Jason Garretts situation there and Smiths longtime affection his boyhood team, the Cowboys. ESPNs Adam Schefter tweeted Monday that Smith is not expected to take an assistants job this season, and Smith is still due more than 5 million under the final year of his Bears contract.
