Marc Trestman’s hired a new quarterbacks coach for the Chicago Bears.

The Bears announced Friday that Matt Cavanaugh will take over the job most recently held by Jeremy Bates, who was let go when Trestman came aboard. Cavanaugh spent the last four years as the quarterbacks coach for the Jets before getting jettisoned along with offensive coordinator Tony Sparano at the end of a dismal season for the Jets offense.

While with the Jets in 2012, Cavanaugh had an opportunity to work with Tim Tebow. As Florio pointed out earlier this week, Trestman also has connections to Tebow. Trestman worked with him before the 2010 draft and coaching a Montreal Alouettes team that holds the CFL rights to the player who was discussed a lot while being used rarely with the Jets. There’s no reason to think Tebow’s headed for the Windy City at this point, although the familiarity does offer up a potential landing spot for a player without many others.

The Bears have also hired Skip Peete to be their running backs coach. Peete was let go by the Cowboys earlier this month after Dallas posted the fewest rushing yards in a season for the franchise since the NFL moved to a 16-game schedule.

This will be interesting to follow, no matter what the outcome will be. We wil off course assume this is a bust hire. But imagine that he is successful, what that is saying about Sanchite and the others. :)

I have wonder what in Cavanaugh's body of work convinced Trestman that this was a good hire. Sanchez regressed dramatically under his tutelage to the point where even the most basic of his throwing mechanics were a mess.

Cavanaugh: "Now remember Jay, when you see a WR wide open, be sure to stare him down while pump faking towards him at least 3 times before throwing it to him. Works like a charm."

Don't forget pointing to him

Alternative:

(Shows Cutler film of Mark Sanchez, 2009-2012)

"So Jay. What I just showed you? Don't do any of that."
