Chicago Bears Hire Tim Holt As Offensive Line Coach

The Chicago Bears have hired Tim Holt to be the team's new offensive line coach, as the team announced on Wednesday. He'll be replacing new offensive coordinator Mike Tice, who was promoted after the departure of Mike Martz at the end of last season.

Before joining the Bears, Holt had spent the past three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Last season, he was an assistant offensive line coach for Tampa Bay. Before jumping to the NFL, Holt spent 14 seasons coaching at the college level at schools such as Cornell and Southern Connecticut State.

The move fills out Lovie Smith's coaching staff for the 2012 season. He's now had four different offensive line coaches in his time at the helm in Chicago.
