Shane Toub will be in his third season on Nagy's staff in 2020 and his first as defensive quality control coach after spending the past two as an offensive assistant. Toub joined the Bears in 2018 following a one-year stop with the University of Illinois football program in 2017 where he served as an offensive graduate assistant under former Bears head coach Lovie Smith.
While at Illinois, Toub was instrumental in the development of the Illini's core group of young talent. Sophomore quarterback Jeff George passed for seven touchdowns through seven games and finished the season with a 112.7 efficiency rating. Freshman running back Mike Epstein led the team in rushing with 363 yards in just five games (69.2 ypg) while fellow freshman running back RaVon Bonner posted a team-high four rushing touchdowns. Collectively, the Illinois offense ranked fourth in the Big Ten in red zone scoring percentage, coming away with points on 24-of-27 (88.9%) opportunities with 14 touchdowns (9 rushing, 5 passing) and 10 field goals.
A 2016 graduate from the University of Dayton, Toub was a four-year letterwinner on the Flyer's football team and a four-time PFL Academic Honor Roll member. After being named a team captain as a senior in 2016, Toub garnered the club's Stan Kurdziel Memorial Trophy, awarded to the team's top lineman.
Shane is the son of Kansas City Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub, who held the same position with the Bears from 2004-12.
