What the Hell?

Generally, when the Bears hire a position coach, I have little to say because I've never heard of the guy, but today is an exception, as the Lovie Smith hired Steven Wilks to be the new secondary coach. Wilks, as most Irish fans don't wish to recall, was the Notre Dame secondary coach under Tyrone Willingham in 2004, a season where Notre Dame finished 109th in the nation against the pass and the corners couldn't cover a receiver with two broken legs. Wilks worked his magic as the Washington Huskies secondary coach under Willingham this past season where the Huskies finished a vaunted 106th in the nation against the pass. To put it nicely, this is an atrocious hiring and they might as well have hired me to be the new secondary coach.
