Bears hired Mel Tucker as defensive coordinator.
The Chicago Tribune reported Friday evening that the Bears would interview Raheem Morris for the position on Saturday, but that meeting apparently won't happen. Tucker will have a big role with the Bears, as defensive boss under offensive-minded head coach Marc Trestman. He'll also oversee the strength of the Bears' roster. Tucker runs a 4-3, Cover-2 style defense, easing the transition from Lovie Smith. Tucker spent the past four years running the Jaguars defense but wasn't expected to return following the hiring of Gus Bradley.
