LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears have hired former Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Ted Monachino as senior defensive assistant and outside linebackers coach.

Monachino worked for new Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano in Indianapolis and with him on John Harbaugh's staff in Baltimore. He was a senior defensive analyst for Missouri last season and was hired as Kansas State's defensive coordinator and linebackers coach in December.

In Chicago, he will work with All-Pro Khalil Mack. The Bears won the NFC North at 12-4 after four straight last-place finishes and made the playoffs for the first time since 2010 in coach Matt Nagy's first season. Their defense ranked among the best in the NFL.

The Bears announced the move on Monday.
