Yep, it's official. Earlier today we mentioned that the Bears were in discussions to hire former St. Louis Rams head coach Mike Martz.

Chicago media is now reporting that today the Bears sealed the deal. In a role reversal, Martz will now work for Smith -- his former defensive coordinator for the 2001- 2003 Rams.
