Spending time learning and getting acquainted with a new position was a priority for Michigan's cornerback coach Roy Manning this spring. It appears he will spending even more time in the higher ranks honing his craft for a few weeks this summer.

According to a tweet posted by Manning on Monday, he will be headed to Chicago to work with the Bears staff.

Michigan coach Brady Hoke's brother, Jon, is the secondary coach for the Bears and has spent the last five seasons in Chicago working with players like Charles Tillman and Major Wright. Manning, who played outside linebacker at Michigan and in the NFL, has never coached cornerbacks in the past and was recently moved to coach that position before spring practices began. He has previously worked with the offensive line and running backs.

Manning was responsible for the outside linebackers last season before the switch.
