New Bears QB coach has ties to Cutler
Jay Cutler has had a strained relationship with offensive coaches for the Chicago Bears, but Tuesday’s hiring of Jeremy Bates as the team’s quarterbacks coach gives him someone he’s worked closely with in the past.
Bates worked with Cutler in Denver and he will serve under new offensive coordinator Mike Tice. Bates was out of the NFL durng the 2011 season after working as the offensive coordinator under Pete Carroll for the Seattle Seahawks for one season.
It was only a matter of time before this bromance lost its status as a long distance relationship. IAOFM has procured a transcript of the text messages exchanged between JB and Cutty:
Cutler: PRW LOL
Cutler: K LMIRL?
Cutler: K QB COACH?
Bates: LOL K
Cuter: OMG 4 REAL?
