Bears fill LB position with Lee

SHARE Bears fill LB position with Lee

Lovie Smith will not be conducting job interviews as the Senior Bowl next week.

Not for a linebackers coach, anyway.

The team moved quickly to fill the vacancy created last week by the resignation of Hardy Nickerson, promoting defensive assistant Lloyd Lee into the position.

Lee worked with the nickel backs last season and served as an assistant linebackers coach under Bob Babich in 2006. He was a quality control assistant for the two seasons prior to that.

The Senior Bowl is a gathering spot for most coaches in the country looking for jobs, and the action heats up in Mobile, Ala., next week. This wont be an opening to discuss there.
