Bears to interview Ike Hilliard for wide receivers coach

The Chicago Bears have found their offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator in Shane Waldron and Eric Washington, respectively, and they’re continuing to fill out some vacant offensive assistant positions.

The Bears are interviewing veteran wide receivers coach Ike Hilliard for their wide receivers coach opening, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Hilliard, a former NFL wide receiver for the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, has 14 years of coaching experience between teh collegiate and NFL level. He’s served as assistant wide receivers coach with the Miami Dolphins (2011) and wide receivers coach with Washington (2012, 2014-19), Buffalo Bills (2013) and Pittsburgh Steelers (2020-21). Hilliard most recently served as wide receivers coach and interim co-offensive coordinator with Auburn.

Hilliard previously worked with Waldron in Washington when Hilliard was wide receivers coach and Waldron as offensive quality control coach in 2016.

Chicago is also interviewing Los Angeles Chargers wide receivers coach Chris Beatty for the same job.

Waldron has already found his quarterbacks coach in Kerry Joseph, who previously served as the assistant quarterbacks coach with the Seattle Seahawks. On the opposite side of the ball, the Bears hired Eric Washington as their defensive coordinator.
