    New Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano has his first assistant coach, as Deshea Townsend has been named as the team’s defensive backs coach.

    Townsend spent the 2018 season as an assistant DB’s coach for the New York Giants, and replaces Ed Donatell, who left the Bears to become Vic Fangio’s defensive coordinator in Denver.

    Townsend has coached at both the professional and collegiate level, working with the Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans before arriving in New York with the Giants.

    The Bears also announced that they have hired Ronell Williams as a defensive quality control coach. He spent the last two seasons as a defensive analyst at Temple.
