Pierre Ngo to Re-join Bears as an Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach
This is the time of year when we tend to keep our eyes open for any shuffling of assistant coaches. But those aren’t the only hires happening around this time of year. There are additional support staff gigs that open up here and there. And it appears the Chicago Bears are primed to do some ancillary hiring.
A pair of reports are out sharing that the team is hiring Pierre Ngo as an assistant strength and conditioning coach:
Ngo (pronounced NO for those of you keeping score at home) was with the Bears from 2015-20. He worked on staffs led by John Fox (2015-17) and Matt Nagy (2018-21) during his first stint in Chicago. He’ll join under Matt Eberflus upon his return, making this the third different regime for him. Ngo also spent time with the Jets (2012-13) and collegiately with UCLA and Arizona State.
The Bears appear to be in the second year of remodeling their strength and conditioning program. And for the second consecutive year, they’re bringing back a familiar face. Last year, it was Jim Arthur coming back as the new head strength and conditioning coach. And that came in the same offseason in which the team hired Brent Salazar to what was then a newly created position of Director of High Performance. To be honest, strength and conditioning hires are not my expertise. But I’m digging how the Bears are trying to work some new angles. Maybe it’ll give them an edge in an area that hasn’t really been a strong suit in recent years with injuries and whatnot.
