With Lovie Smith’s job security a popular topic in the media, special teams coordinator Dave Toub gave the Bears coach a ringing endorsement on Thursday.
“The one thing about Lovie, he’s always going to be the same, and that’s a great character trait as a head coach,” Toub said. “He doesn’t waver. If [something] is bothering him, he doesn’t let the players see it, he’s not letting the coaches see it.
“He’s been steady and we are very lucky, the Chicago Bears are very lucky to have Lovie Smith and we better realize that. Everybody better realize that.”
Hired as part of Smith’s original Bears staff in 2004, Toub enjoys their working relationship.
“He lets coaches coach,” Toub said. “He lets me do my job. He has total trust in everything that I do and as a coach you can’t ask for a better situation. Obviously I don’t call everything without going through him, but he lets us design our schemes and doesn’t second guess what we do. You can’t get a better situation as a coach.
“Lovie’s a great coach and he needs to stay here.”
