Bears hire Gilbride as TE coach

The Chicago Bears announced Kevin M. Gilbride as their tight ends coach on Saturday.

Gilbride, 38, is the son of former longtime NFL offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.

The younger Gilbride, 38, spent the last eight seasons with his father on the New York Giants, with the last four as the team's tight ends coach. He has also been a position coach or offensive assistant with Syracuse, Georgetown and Temple.

Gilbride is the newest addition to the offensive ranks under new coach Matt Nagy. He joins offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, offensive line coach Harry Hiestand, running backs coach Charles London and receivers coach Mike Furrey.

Under Gilbride's watch, Evan Engram led all NFL rookie tight ends in receptions (64) and receiving yards (722) and tied for first in receiving touchdowns (six). Engram also led the Giants in receptions and touchdown catches while finishing second on the team in receiving yards.

Gilbride also helped in the development of Will Tye, who finished third on the team with 48 receptions for 395 yards and a touchdown in 2016. As a rookie out of Stony Brook in 2015, Tye led all NFL rookie tight ends in catches (42) and receiving yards (464) and was tied for the lead in touchdown receptions (three).

Gilbride is expected to work with Chicago's Dion Sims and Adam Shaheen, who was a second-round pick in the 2017 draft. Sims had 15 catches for 180 yards and a touchdown this season while Shaheen reeled in 12 receptions for 127 yards and three scores.
