The Bears on Wednesday hired Chris Morgan as their offensive line coach.

Morgan possesses 13 years of NFL experience, most recently as assistant offensive line coach with the Steelers in 2021. Prior to that, he spent six seasons as offensive line coach with the Falcons from 2015-20, doubling as running game coordinator in 2018.

In 2016, the offensive line helped the Falcons lead the NFL in scoring with 33.8 points per game, set a franchise record with 540 points and reach the Super Bowl. Quarterback Matt Ryan was named NFL MVP after establishing career highs and setting team passing marks with 4,944 yards, 38 touchdowns and a league-leading 117.1 rating.

Prior to joining the Falcons, Morgan worked as an assistant offensive line coach with the Raiders (2009-10), Washington (2011-13) and the Seahawks (2014).

Morgan began his coaching career as an assistant at Copperas Cove High School in Texas, the school that produced former Bears star cornerback Charles Tillman. Morgan then served as an offensive graduate assistant at Idaho, where he earned a master's degree in educational leadership.

As a player, Morgan was an offensive lineman at Colorado from 1995-99.
