The Chicago Bears hired Clint Hurtt as their assistant defensive line coach on Saturday to replace Michael Sinclair, who was notified he would not be back with the staff in 2014.

Hurtt has 13 years of collegiate coaching experience, including the last four as Louisville's defensive line coach/recruiting coordinator. This will be his first NFL job.

Hurtt also coached at Florida International and Miami, where he had a three-year playing career with the Hurricanes. At Miami, he worked as the team's defensive line coach from 2006-09, adding the title of recruiting coordinator in 2007.

Hurtt is the third new addition to coach Marc Trestman's staff this week.

Earlier in the week, the Bears finalized the hirings of Paul Pasqualoni as their defensive line coach and Reggie Herring as their linebackers coach.
