Saints offensive line coach will be new offensive coordinator in Chicago
The man who served as interim coach of the Saints for the first 6 games of the 2012 season is headed to Chicago to serve as the new offensive coordinator for the Bears.
Aaron Kromer was the offensive line coach for the Saints. His contract expired at the end of the season. He spent 5 seasons with the Saints developing and tutoring offensive linemen and also was responsible for the design and blocking schemes of the rushing attack.
ESPN's Pat Yasinskas reports that although contracts were offered to coaches whose agreements had expired, "the opportunity to be a coordinator for new Chicago coach Marc Trestman apparently was too tempting for Kromer."
Trestman comes to the Bears from the Canadian Football League where he served as head coach of the Montreal Alouettes.
