Shoop was promoted as the Bears' offensive coordinator on Jan. 22, 2001 after joining the Bears' coaching staff on Feb. 5, 1999 as the squad's quarterbacks coach. Shoop will continue to work with the quarterbacks in addition to his game-planning duties. He joined Chicago after serving four seasons with the Carolina Panthers (1995-98).
Seal of Approval
Shoop is set to enter his second full season as offensive coordinator for the Bears and fourth with the team. Since taking over playing-calling responsibilities in 2000 prior to Chicago's Week 15 matchup against New England, the Bears have won 15 of their last 19 regular-season games under his offensive direction. The Bears won two of their final three contests in 2000 after he was named offensive coordinator on an interim basis then led Chicago to 13 wins in 2001 despite replacing seven of 11 starters from the previous season.
