LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — The Chicago Bears have promoted offensive line coach Mike Tice to offensive coordinator, replacing the departed Mike Martz.

The move on Friday comes less than a week after the Bears completed a disappointing 8-8 season. They parted with Martz, who had an expiring contract, on the same day general manager Jerry Angelo was fired.

This will be the first coordinator job for Tice, who just completed his second season as the Bears’ line coach. He spent the previous four seasons as an assistant in Jacksonville and was the head coach in Minnesota for four years after serving as the Vikings’ offensive line and tight ends coach.

The Bears will look for a new offensive line coach, although Tice will continue to have a heavy hand in that area.
