LAKE FOREST, IL — The Chicago Bears and General Manager Phil Emery announced today that they have promoted Mark Sadowski to senior national scout.

Sadowski has 16 years of NFL scouting experience with the New Orleans Saints (1998-2005) and Bears (2005-13), including spending the past year as one of Chicago's national scouts.

"Mark has been essential in the scouting and the evaluation of player talent since joining the Bears," said Emery. "He has also been integral in establishing how we are using technology to elevate our scouting process and personnel operations."

Sadowski served as Chicago's Southeast area scout (2005-12) after working in New Orleans as a pro scout (1998-99), NFS combine scout (2000) and Southeast area scout (2001-05).

Prior to joining the Saints, he served as defensive and special teams' assistant at his alma mater, Tulane University, under former Green Wave head coaches Buddy Teevens and Tommy Bowden. Sadowski played safety for the Green Wave while earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from Tulane while being honored as a member of the athletic department's "3.0 Club" and Dean's List.

The Chicago native attended St. Rita High School. He and his wife, Holly, have one daughter, Raffaella Rose.
