Bill Lazor hired as new Bears offensive coordinator
The Bears have hired Bill Lazor to be their new offensive coordinator, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported on Monday.
The 47-year-old Lazor most recently served as the offensive coordinator for the Bengals for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. He also held the offensive coordinator position for the Dolphins in 2014 and 2015. In his two seasons working for Cincinnati, the Bengals had the 22nd- and 19th-ranked offensive DVOAs, according to Football Outsiders.
EDIT: A second source confirms - http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001096543/article/bears-hiring-exbengals-oc-bill-lazor-as-their-oc
The Bengals were the worst team in the league in 2017 on offense and only once in his four years as an offensive coordinator did a Lazor offense finish higher than 26th.
