Bears | Chris Harris wants to prove himself

Mon, 18 Feb 2013 06:21:25 -0800

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said defensive quality control coach Chris Harris is eager to prove himself in his new role. "He wanted to learn how to be a coach from the ground up," Trestman said. "He understands the defense very well. He understands what it's like to be a player from a different perspective. He'll have the respect of the players because a lot of them know him as a person. I'm excited for him because he wants to do it the right way. He doesn't feel like he's entitled to have more of a job than he has and he's a great addition in terms of a communicator. He really adds value to our staff."
