LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Jan. 27, 2004) -- The Chicago Bears hired Tim Spencer as running backs coach, the same post he's held at Ohio State for 10 years.
Spencer, a running back at Ohio State from 1979-82, was the second player taken in the 1983 USFL draft. He played three seasons in that league, before playing for the San Diego Chargers from 1985-90.
Spencer and new Bears head coach Lovie Smith were on the Ohio State staff together in 1995.
