(670 The Score) Dowell Loggains is bound for Miami, set to become offensive coordinator for Adam Gase’s Dolphins, NFL Media reported.
Loggains replaced Gase as Bears offensive coordinator beginning in 2016. He’s the first member of John Fox’s coaching staff to depart after Fox was fired Monday. The rest of the coaching staff remains intact, general manager Ryan Pace said during his year-end press conference.
The 37-year-old Loggains has a strong relationship with Gase and reportedly moved for Miami immediately after the firing of Fox on Monday. Clyde Christensen, previously the offensive coordinator for the Dolphins, will transition into another role with the team, according to the report.
Fox made the decision to promote Loggains after the expected departure of Gase for a head coaching opportunity. The Bears ranked 29th in scoring at just 16.5 points per game this season, working with an offense led by rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the No. 2 overall pick, for 12 games.
The Bears are searching for their next head coach after the dismissal of Fox. They could well move to hire an offensive-minded head coach for the benefit of Trubisky.
