Pep Hamilton not bitter

Bears quarterbacks coach Pep Hamilton was let go after a disappointing 2009 season. But Hamilton, who is at the Senior Bowl, didn’t take issue with the Bears decision.

Asked what happened, Hamilton said, “They made a change.”

Asked if he was disappointed, Hamilton said, “It’s disappointing because we’re not playing in the Super Bowl.

“This (changes) is a part of it.”

Hamilton, who had been the Bears quarterbacks coach since 2007, didn’t say anything negative about Jay Cutler, either.

“Real good player,” Hamilton said. “Real talented player, who has a very promising future.”

Something tells me he’s trying to take the high road on both topics.

Hamilton said he’s currently looking for a new job.
