Aaron Kromer will reunite with Marc Trestman and join the Bears as their new offensive coordinator/offensive line coach, ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported.

Kromer was the Saints’ interim head coach for six games in 2012 while Sean Payton and Joe Vitt were serving suspensions. Kromer was the O-line coach in New Orleans from 2009-12 and coached the Saints’ running backs in 2008.

Trestman and Kromer were together in Oakland from 2001-2003. Kromer stayed with the Raiders in 2004 before heading to Tampa Bay for a three-year stint.

Also joining Trestman is Joe DeCamillis, who will be the Bears' assistant head coach and special-teams coach, according to Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune. DeCamillis is still under contract with the Cowboys, but he is expected to leave for Chicago. He interviewed for the Bears' head-coaching job and has been with Dallas since 2009. DeCamillis has also had stops as a special-teams coach with the Broncos, Giants, Falcons and Jaguars.

The Bears hired Trestman as the 14th head coach in club history early Wednesday morning.
