CHICAGO -- New Chicago Bears coach Marc Trestman wasted little time assembling his staff after being hired on Wednesday, bringing in two co-ordinators. nike free deutschland billig . Chicago hired New Orleans Saints line coach Aaron Kromer as its line coach and offensive co-ordinator and Dallas Joe DeCamillis as its assistant head coach and special teams co-ordinator. The Bears announced the moves on Wednesday, hours after Trestman was hired to replace the fired Lovie Smith. Kromer served as the Saints head coach for six games this season while interim head coach Joe Vitt was suspended for his role in the bounty scandal. Saints coach Sean Payton had to sit out the season. Kromer has been with New Orleans since 2008, coaching running backs for a year before moving over to the offensive line. During his time as the line coach, the Saints tied for the fewest sacks allowed with 96 and had five blockers combine to make nine Pro Bowls -- tackles Jermon Bushrod and Jon Stinchcomb, guards Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks and centre Jonathan Goodwin. Kromer and Trestman worked together on the Oakland Raiders staff from 2001 to 2003. DeCamillis has coached or co-ordinated special teams in the NFL for 25 years -- the past four with Dallas -- and worked in Atlanta when Bears general manager Phil Emery was the Falcons college scouting director. He interviewed for Chicagos head coaching job but is joining Trestmans staff, instead. He replaces Dave Toub, who left to take a similar job under Andy Reid in Kansas City. Dallas Dwayne Harris was second in the league at 16.1 yards per punt return this season while kicker Dan Bailey tied for second in field goal accuracy at 93.5 per cent, converting 29 of 31 attempts. Now, DeCamillis will oversee a group that consistently ranked among the best during Toubs nine seasons, with stars such as return specialist Devin Hester and kicker Robbie Gould. They had one of the top coverage units this season with Eric Weems and Blake Costanzo. nike free deutschland herren .

FBI special agent Steve Emmett in Atlanta told The Associated Press on Sunday that the agency is involved in the hunt for Javaris Crittenton.

Catch all the action on TSN2 and TSN Mobile TV, tonight at 10:30pm et/7:30pm pt. The Spurs took a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference quarterfinals on Wednesday night in San Antonio with a 102-91 victory. Things wont get any easier for the Lakers in trying to make this a competitive series. Kobe Bryant is already down after Achilles tendon surgery and the backcourt took some serious blows on Wednesday. Steve Blake, who replaced Bryant in the starting lineup and averaged 14.0 ppg through the first two games, suffered a moderate strain of his right hamstring Wednesday. He is out indefinitely. Jodie Meeks has a sprained left ankle and is listed as doubtful. The biggest injury of them all belongs to point guard Steve Nash. He received two epidural injections in his back and a cortisone shot in his right hip and is also listed as doubtful. "Im still in a lot of discomfort, not only from last night, but getting a bunch of darts stuck in me," Nash said Thursday. "Im very concerned. Its really frustrating, especially because I was at the point where I was excited to start the last two games even though I still couldnt sprint completely and I was not moving as well as Id like. I still thought I could still be effective and find a way to heelp the team and impact the game. nike free damen. ." Blake and Dwight Howard led the way for the Lakers in Game 2. Metta World Peace and Pau Gasol had 13 apiece and Darius Morris added 10 off the bench. The Spurs won all four quarters on Wednesday and point guard Tony Parker was spectacular. He notched 28 points, handed out seven assists and didnt have a single turnover. "The second half I was very aggressive," said Parker. "Ive been battling a lot of injuries, but I felt very good tonight. Most importantly, we won the game." Parker was at his best on Wednesday, but the Spurs were polished on offense. Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, Matt Bonner and Manu Ginobili all joined Parker as double-digit scorers in Game 2. The Spurs shot 51 percent from the field, 50 percent from behind the 3-point line and only committed nine turnovers. "Were playing Spurs basketball," said Parker. Spurs basketball has sent four championship banners to the rafters. It also taught the team to take nothing for granted. "All we did was keep serve. We have to go out (to Los Angeles) and see if we can play better than we did at home," Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich said. San Antonio won one of two games on the road this season against the Lakers and have taken four of the last six away from home against the Lakers. Game 4 is slated for Sunday. ' ' '
