Toub Gets a Contract Extension to Stay with the Bears

The Bears will not lose one of their most significant free agents: Special teams coordinator Dave Toub received a two-year contract Tuesday that will keep him in place through 2013.

Toub, who interviewed to become the head coach of the Dolphins, was informed he is no longer in the running for that job. The Dolphins are expected to bring candidates in for a second interview.

An original member of Lovie Smith’s coaching staff from 2004, Toub consistently has had the Bears among the top-ranked special teams units in the league. They finished third this past season in comprehensive special teams rankings, and they have placed in the top six in five of the last six seasons.
