I am taking a step back to take care of my health and family. I appreciate the opportunity to work with the Chicago Bears, a legendary NFL team with a rich history, Allan said in a statement, according to ESPN.
The McCaskey family is first class and second to none. I would also like to thank Coach Matt Eberflus and General Manager Ryan Powles for giving me the opportunity to come to Chicago. I would also like to thank President Kevin Warren, the coaches and players, whose relationships and camaraderie I cherish, he added. I appreciate the NFL Shield and all that it represents, and after I take some time to get healthy, I plan to come back and coach again.
