Bears add Bo Hardegree to coaching staff


The Chicago Bears announced Saturday they reached an agreement with Bo Hardegree to join the club’s staff as an offensive assistant.

The club added quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains to the staff on Friday along with linebackers coach Glenn Pires.

Hardegree spent the 2014 season as an offensive quality control coach with the Denver Broncos, which finished second in the NFL in scoring offense (30.1 points per game) and fourth in total offense (402.9 yards per game).

Hardegree worked for three years at Louisiana State prior to joining the Broncos, serving as an intern on the offensive (2012-13) and defensive (2011) staffs. In Hardegree’s three seasons at LSU, the Tigers compiled a 33-7 record, and won the 2011 SEC championship, in addition to advancing to the BCS National Championship Game.

Hardegree started his coaching career at Duke, working as a graduate assistant from 2008-10.

Hardegree played quarterback at Tennessee, and also participated in tennis, graduating in 2007 with a degree in exercise science.
