The Bears signed offensive line coach Mike Tice a one-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2012 season, according to the team’s website.
The Tennessee Titans recently asked for permission to interview Tice for their offensive coordinator vacancy. The Bears denied that request.
Running backs coach Tim Spencer, linebackers coach Bob Babich and secondary coach Jon Hoke also signed extensions, according to ChicagoBears.com.
“Chicago has been a great fit for [wife] Diane and me,” Tice told the website. “I work with a bunch of great coaches and with players who are committed to putting in the work to be the best.”
