Two more Denver assistants have followed John Fox to Chicago: defensive line coach Jay Rodgers will hold that same position with the Bears, now that the Broncos have hired Bill Kollar from Houston. Rodgers joins his brother, special teams coordinator Jeff, who was among the first assistants to make the move.

On Saturday, it was announced that offensive quality control coach Bo Hardegree was heading to the Bears as an offensive assistant. Hardegree came to Denver last year via Duke, where he coached under David Cutcliffe, Peyton Manning's college OC and forever throwing coach.

In other coaching news:

- The Falcons are expected to name Dan Quinn their new head coach shortly after SB 49; it's believed that Raheem Morris will be Quinn's DC.

- Despite prior speculation, former Steelers DC Dick LeBeau will not be joining Bruce Arians' staff in Arizona.

- Lane Kiffin is staying at Alabama; he was a leading candidate to run San Francisco's offense
