Bob Bostad Expected To Be Named Bears Offensive Line Coach

CHICAGO (CBS) — University of Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Bob Bostad is expected to be named Bears offensive line coach, provided offensive coordinator Mike Tice stays with the team.

WSCR 670 The Score’s Mike Mulligan reports the official announcement will be coming soon from the Bears, although it likely won’t come until next week because Tice is expected to interview for the Oakland Raiders’ vacant head coaching job Tuesday.

Bostad left Wisconsin after the Rose Bowl to take the offensive coordinator job at Pitt. Former Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst was hired as Pitt’s head coach in December and offered Bostad the job. The two are close friends, so it’s somewhat surprising Bostad would leave already for an NFL job.

That said, Bostad has a connection to Bears offensive coordinator Mike Tice. Tice’s son, Nate, was a walk-on quarterback on the Badgers the last few years. Bostad also coached Bears offensive tackle Gabe Carimi at Wisconsin.

Tice was recently promoted to become the Bears’ offensive coordinator, replacing Mike Martz.

But this week, reports surfaced that the Oakland Raiders want to interview Tice for their head coach vacancy.
