Bears hire two more assistant coaches

The Chicago Bears hired quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains and linebackers coach Glenn Pires on Friday night.

The Bears requested to interview Loggains for this job in 2012, but the Titans denied it. He spent one season as the Browns quarterbacks coach before they fired him on Jan. 8. 

Loggains was the Titans' offensive coordinator in 2013 and the final five games of 2012. Before that, he served as their quarterbacks coach/passing game coordinator (2010-12) and as an offensive quality control coach (2008-09).

Pires spent the last seven seasons coaching the Falcons' linebackers. He has 19 seasons of NFL experience, including stints with the Dolphins, Lions and Cardinals.
