Bears shake up coaching staff

CHICAGO Feb. 8, 2007) -- The NFC champion Bears shook up their coaching staff, saying defensive line coach Don Johnson and assistant offensive line coach Harold Goodwin won't return and that another assistant has left to take a college job.

Offensive quality control coach Mike Bajakian also accepted the offensive coordinator job at Central Michigan after three seasons in Chicago.

Johnson spent two seasons with the Bears after five years as an assistant at UCLA, while Goodwin was hired shortly after Lovie Smith became the head coach in January 2004.

The moves came four days after the Bears lost to Indianapolis in the Super Bowl.
