Bears add Cavanaugh, Peete to coaching staff

Posted: Updated:
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (Associated Press) -

The Chicago Bears have hired Matt Cavanaugh as their quarterbacks coach and Skip Peete as their running backs coach.

Cavanaugh will try to get the most out of Jay Cutler after spending the past four seasons as the New York Jets' quarterbacks coach, working with Mark Sanchez. The Jets have gone 14-18 the past two years.

Cavanaugh served as the Bears' offensive coordinator from 1997 and 1998, and he was San Francisco's quarterbacks coach in 1996 when new Bears coach Marc Trestman was the 49ers' offensive coordinator.

Peete was fired after six seasons in Dallas. The Cowboys finished next-to-last in the NFL with 1,265 yards on the ground. Dallas never had a 1,000-yard rusher under Peete but did finish seventh in the league in rushing in 2007.
