Dray, 35, was an NFL tight end from 2010-'17, playing in 94 games across eight seasons. He entered coaching after retirement, working as an offensive quality control coach for the Browns (2019) and Cardinals (2020-'21) across the past three seasons.

A Stanford product, Dray also worked as an offensive assistant with the Cardinal program in 2018.

Dray replaces former Bears tight ends coach Clancy Barone, who was on former head coach Matt Nagy's staff for the past two years.

With Dray's addition, new Bears coach Matt Eberflus has filled every position coach role except for running backs coach and defensive line coach.
