The Chicago Bears are expected to announce Clint Hurtt as their new defensive line coach after it was confirmed on Thursday that he is leaving the Louisville Cardinals.

Although Hurtt's destination has not yet been confirmed, it's widely expected that he will join the Bears.

In an official statement, Hurtt said: "I want to thank Tom Jurich, Bobby Petrino, and President James Ramsey for their support during this process.

"I truly looked forward to working with Bobby Petrino at Louisville, but I feel this is a great opportunity. Tom is always going to be important to me and my family. He stuck with me through the toughest of times, and I will always appreciate his support for me and my family.

"I will always love the University of Louisville and will always miss the city and be grateful for the opportunity to coach here. My ambition is to build a career in the NFL. I made a mark in recruiting and coaching at the collegiate level, but I think I can improve my career and begin a new one in the NFL."

Hurtt is not alone in his optimism. Bobby Petrino added: "We wish Clint nothing but the best.

"He is a very good young coach, and I am sure he will continue to do great things in the NFL."

Bears finished second in the NFC North this season, winning eight and losing eight of their games.
