Chris Morgan
Chris Morgan has been an NFL offensive line coach since 2009, when he began his career with the Raiders. He also made stops with Washington and Seattle before being hired as the Falcons’ offensive line coach in 2015.

After overseeing the Falcons’ offensive line’s improvement from bring PFF’s 26th ranked unit in 2014 to fourth the ensuing season, Morgan was named Pro Football Focus’s offensive line coach of the year in 2015, beating out candidates such as Mike Tice, then with the Raiders, and Bill Callahan, then with Washington.

Morgan was also part of a staff that helped the Atlanta offense to its 2016 record-breaking season. In 2019, he coached a unit that allowed the offense to average 379.7 yards per game, the fifth-most in the NFL, and average 294.6 passing yards per game, the third-highest average in the league.

More recently, Morgan was tasked with bringing two first-round rookies--guard Chris Lindstrom (16th) and tackle Kaleb McGary (31st)—up to speed following their selections in the 2019 draft. Lindstrom overcame an injury-filled rookie season to finish as the Falcons’ highest-graded offensive lineman this season.

The Athletic‘s Mike Jones shared a list of head coach candidates to watch during this coaching cycle, and he included Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy and offensive line coach Chris Morgan...While Getsy’s name isn’t a surprise on this list, Morgan certainly is. Not only has he helped orchestrated Chicago’s top-ranked rushing attack, but he’s someone who’s garnering attention in NFL coaching circles.

Morgan also has played a key role in developing the Bears offense into the most imposing rushing attack in the league. Although unknown to outsiders, he has begun developing a strong reputation in NFL coaching circles. In addition to the rushing success in his first season with the Bears, Morgan coached under Kyle Shanahan in Washington and Atlanta, and played a role in the playoff runs of both teams. Morgan is expected to receive interest for offensive coordinator positions this offseason.
