    Re: Bears/Vikings Connections

    Isn't our assistant line guy and former player, Corbin Lucina a former Bear.

    I think he played there his last season.

    He is not listed on the website as a coach, but I saw or heard his named mentioned as a sideline coach on Sunday.***

    Correct me if I am wrong.
