July 25, 2020 - Canadian Football League (CFL) News Release
CHICAGO - Just 10 ten days removed from earning his induction into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, Henry Burris has another reason to smile.
According to Adam Jahns of The Athletic, Burris will join the training camp coaching staff of the Chicago Bears. Burris will be a part of coach Matt Nagy's staff as a part of the Bill Walsh Diversity Coaching Fellowship, says Jahns.
Burris had a stint with the Bears in 2002 in between his time with the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The would-be two-time Grey Cup MVP completed 18 of 51 passes for 207 yards and three touchdowns and five picks in six games with the Bears.
He returned to the Riders in 2003 to restart what would be an 18-year CFL career.
