The Chicago Bears have signed special teams coordinator Dave Toub to a two-year extensions, making him one of the highest paid at his position across the NFL. Toub was under consideration by the Miami Dolphins for their head coaching vacancy.
This contract extension means many things. (1) If the Bears have a disastrous 2012, the organization could look within and consider Toub as a replacement both short and long-term replacement. (2) Even if the new GM moves on from Lovie at the end of 2012 the organization can prevent Toub from moving laterally (as an ST coordinator) to another organization. (3) Most importantly the Bears kept their finest coach.
