LAKE FOREST, Ill. – The Chicago Bears promoted Pat Meyer to offensive line coach Wednesday and added martial arts expert Joe Kim to their coaching staff.
Meyer served as assistant line coach last season, with Aaron Kromer serving as offensive line coach and offensive coordinator. Kromer will still be heavily involved with the line. But Meyer gets a loftier title.
Kim, a Taekwondo expert, was hired as assistant strength/skill development coach. He has 21 years of experience as a consultant and assistant strength coach. He most recently worked in the NFL as a pass rush consultant with the Kansas City Chiefs from 2010-12 and figures to help the Bears in that area after they tied Jacksonville with a league-low 31 sacks.
