Henry Burris will be sticking around at Halas Hall.
The Bears are keeping the CFL Hall of Famer an offensive quality control coach. Burris started last season on a Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship during training camp. When the stint expired, team kept him on staff for the rest of the year as a seasonal assistant.
“With Henry, he has a lot of good ideas,” coach Matt Nagy, whose own career started when an internship turned into a low-level job, said in September. “For us he’s able to look at it from a quarterback’s perspective. Which is where I think will be a great for him to help out as well. He can bounce around and be in different rooms and give us an opinion as to where he’s at. We have a lot of respect for who he is and his experience in football and in general. So we will bounce him around. We can put him on different projects and have him maybe look ahead and help us out with future teams.”
Burris started at quarterback once for the 2002 Bears before heading north. In 18 years in the CFL, he won three Grey Cups and was the championship game MVP twice. He was the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player two times.
