Debord spent the last two seasons as the Seattle Seahawks assistant offensive line coach and tight ends coach.
The 53 year old coach started his coaching career in 1992 with the Michigan Wolverines in the college ranks, he stayed there until 1999, until he was hired as the Central Michigan head coach. After four unsuccessful years there, he went back to Michigan and stayed there until 2007. Then he got his shot at the NFL with the Seahawks.
DeBord should have some fun working with a good mixture of tight ends in Chicago. Greg Olsen is about to be a star in this league, Dez Clark is a very crafty veteran, and Kellen Davis has showed some signs of life.
