The Bears have hired former Tulane head coach Curtis Johnson as their new wide receivers coach, per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Johnson spent six seasons with the New Orleans Saints as their receivers coach from 2006-2011 and obviously has a familiarity with Bears general manager Ryan Pace from their time together with that organization. He went on to coach Tulane from 2012-2015 before briefly being re-hired by the Saints as a “senior wide receivers assistant.”

Johnson replaces Mike Groh, who left to become the passing game coordinator and receivers coach for the Los Angeles Rams last month.
