Bears hire Nickerson as LB coach



   Former Bucs linebacker Hardy Nickerson has been hired as the Chicago Bears linebackers coach.

   Nickerson, who has never held a coaching position, was hired by Bears coach Lovie Smith, who taught him for four seasons in Tampa Bay.

   ""I learned a lot of football coaching Hardy Nickerson,'' Smith said. ""He was just professional, he was a coach on the field. I always thought he would make a good coach.''
