Dowell Loggains reportedly taking over as Dolphins offensive coordinator


Dowell Loggains reportedly taking over as Dolphins offensive coordinator

John Fox is already out the door, but it appears offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains is right behind him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and ESPN's Adam Schefter both tweeted that Loggains is going to take over the same post with the Dolphins.

Loggains has been an assistant coach in the NFL since 2008 with posts as Tennessee and Cleveland as well as with the Bears. The 37-year-old took over as quarterbacks coach for the Bears in 2015 and moved to offensive coordinator in 2016.

He will reunite with Adam Gase in Miami. Gase, the Dolphins head coach, was the offensive coordinator for the Bears when Loggains was the QB coach. The Bears will play at the Dolphins next season, meaning the Gase-Loggains connection will face off against their former employer.

Questions about the Bears' coaching staff will persist this offseason until hires are made and getting an offensive coach to work with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will be high on the priority list. With a vacancy now at offensive coodinator as well, it looks like it will be a clean slate for the Bears offense.

This year, the Bears ranked 30th in the NFL in total offense (287.4 yards per game), dead last in passing yards (175.7 per game), 16th in rushing (111.8 yards per game) and 29th in scoring (16.5 points per game). The year before the Bears clocked in at 17.4 points per game, which tied for 28th in the league.

Jay Culter and Kristin Cavallari to host private event this Valentine’s Day in West Loop

Jay Culter and Kristin Cavallari to host private event this Valentine’s Day in West Loop

Former Bears QB and current reality TV husband Jay Cutler will be coming back to Chicago this Valentine’s Day. Cutler’s wife, long-time reality TV star Kristin Cavallari, will be hosting a private event at Uncommon James in West Loop and Cutler is coming along for the festivities. A must event for any fans of mid 2000’s football and MTV.

For $200 per guest, attendees will enjoy food and drink, a private shopping experience and a selfie station. The 3-hour event will also include a question and answer session with Cavallari and Cutler. There’s something for everyone!

Cavallarri is on the third season of her E! show “Very Cavallari” which follows her life and growing business. Uncommon James is a fashion, lifestyle and jewelry brand who opened their Chicago location last October. The flagship store is in Nashville, where Cavallari and Cutler reside with their children.

Cutler is seemingly less-interested in the spotlight than his wife. He isn’t particularly active on social media, with Cavallari posting pictures to an Instagram account for him, so any chance to hang out with the former Bears QB is a rare opportunity. According to Instagram, it looks like Cutler is becoming more involved with Cavallari’s business, designing and modelling a bracelet that doubles as a bottle opener. How very Cutler.

If you’re looking to convince skeptics to shell out for the event, here’s some incentive. According to, the average Bears ticket in 2014 during the middle of Cutler’s tenure on the team was $108 per person, not even including food and drink and access to whatever a selfie station is. So, you’re paying twice as much for a much closer look at Cutler (assuming the store is smaller than Soldier Field) and a chance to ask him and his wife a question! And food! Seems fair when you put it like that.

If you and the K-Cav to your J-Cut are looking for something to do together this Valentine’s Day, the event will be held at Uncommon James in the West Loop, 849 W Randolph St., from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on February 14th.
