special teams asst Chris Tabor "likely" candidate to join Ron Rivera's #Panthers staff per source.
For the second time in his tenure as special-teams coordinator, Dave Toub could see an assistant get a promotion with another team.
Chris Tabor, who has worked under Toub for three seasons, is a likely candidate to become the special-teams coordinator of the Carolina Panthers under new head coach Ron Rivera.
Although Tabor can't talk to the Panthers while the Bears are still active in the playoffs, the move is considered a strong possibility, according to one source with knowledge of the situation.
Tabor is out of contract after this season, so he will be free to move to another team without having to get permission. Kevin O'Dea left the Bears after the 2007 season to become the special-teams coordinator of the New York Jets while an illness sidelined Mike Westhoff.
