The Chicago Bears have hired former Texas head coach Tom Herman as an offensive analyst/special projects coach, the team announced Monday.

Texas fired Herman in January after the program went 7-3 in 2020. Herman compiled a 32-18 record in four seasons in Austin. His tenure as Texas' head coach is viewed as a disappointment after he posted a 22-4 record at Houston.

Herman, 45, rose through the coaching ranks as a touted offensive coordinator with Texas State, Rice, Iowa State, and later Ohio State under Urban Meyer. He helped the Buckeyes win a national championship in 2014 and won the Broyles Award as the top assistant in college football.

Chicago also announced the hiring of Anthony Hibbert as its new assistant strength coach.
