Bears hire Seahawks’ Phair to coach D-line

Updated: September 24, 2012 6:25AM

The Bears have named Mike Phair their new defensive line coach.

Phair most recently was a defensive assistant, assistant defensive line coach and assistant linebackers coach for the Seattle Seahawks after spending three years as one of the Seahawks’ area scouts.

Before that, he worked in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ scouting department.

Phair replaces Eric Washington, who recently was named the Carolina Panthers’ defensive line coach.
