The Bears have hired Mike Clark as their new strength and conditioning coordinator. He replaces Rusty Jones, who is retiring after 28 years in the NFL, the last eight with the Bears.

Clark, 58, has spent the last nine seasons as an NFL head strength and conditioning coach with the Seahawks (2004-09) and Chiefs (2010-12). In Kansas City, he worked with Bears general manager Phil Emery, who served as a strength and conditioning coach at the collegiate level from 1982-98.

Prior to entering the NFL, Clark spent 23 seasons as a head strength and conditioning coach in college at Wyoming (1981), Kansas (1982), Oregon (1983-87), USC (1988-89) and Texas A&M (1990-2003).

In 2003, Clark was inducted into the USA Strength and Conditioning Coaches Hall of Fame.

Out of action: Brandon Marshall has been forced to pull out of the Pro Bowl after recently undergoing a minor arthroscopic procedure on his hip. The Bears receiver has been replaced by the Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald.

Acquired in a blockbuster trade in March, Marshall rewrote the Bears record book in his first season in Chicago, setting franchise records with a career-high 118 receptions and 1,508 yards.

The 6-4, 230-pounder tied for second in the NFL in receptions and ranked third in receiving yards. Marshall's seven 100-yard games tied for the most in Bears history, and he became the fifth NFL receiver to record a 1,000-yard season with three different teams.

Marshall caught a career-high 11 TD passes, tied for the sixth most in Bears history and the most since Curtis Conway had 12 in 1995. Marshall also became the first Bears receiver to be voted to the Pro Bowl since Marty Booker in 2002 and just the second since Dick Gordon in 1971.

The other four Bears who were voted to the Pro Bowl are all expected to play: Cornerbacks Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings, defensive end Julius Peppers and defensive tackle Henry Melton.
