Making the rounds
In other coaching news former Bears defensive coordinator Greg Blache has accepted a job with the Washington Redskins. He joins Joe Gibbs staff as the defensive coordinator and d-line coach.
Blache had agreed to a deal more than two weeks ago, but the official announcement of his position didn't come until yesterday.
Chicago will face eight of their former coaches from a year ago. The Bears will play home and away games at Detroit in 2004. They will face former head coach Dick Jauron, who is now the Lions defensive coordinator, as well as ex-quarterbacks coach Greg Olson and defensive line coach Larry Brooks. They will host Washington which means Greg Blache will come to town. The Bears also travel to Dallas where former receivers coach Todd Haley now works for Bill Parcells. Former special teams coach Mike Sweatman has the same position with the Giants, while ex-tight ends coach Pat Flaherty now coaches New York's offensive line. Amazingly enough John Shoop is working with Tampa Bay's quarterbacks on Jon Gruden's staff.
