The Bears didn’t look far for their next offensive coordinator, naming quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains to the position Monday, the Chicago Sun Times reports.
Loggains, 35, was the logical choice to replace Adam Gase, who left Saturday to become the Dolphins’ head coach. Loggains coached Jay Cutler to a career-high 92.3 quarterback rating in his first season after joining John Fox’s staff following a year in Cleveland. Loggains called plays for the Titans in 2012 and 2013.
“Dowell played a critical role on our offense last year,” Bears head coach John Fox said in a statement. “He’s an excellent coach with experience as a play-caller and a broad knowledge of offensive football. He has earned the respect of our players because they know he can help them get better.”
