Sinclair hasn’t played in an NFL game since the 2002 season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Now, he will be walking the sidelines, as an NFL coach with the Chicago Bears.

Sinclair will join new Bears head coach Marc Trestman as their assistant defensive line coach. He will work under Mike Phair, who is the team’s defensive line coach.

This will be Sinclair’s first coaching job in the NFL. In December, he was hired by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2012, before Trestman was named Bears head coach, as their Assistant Head Coach/Defensive Line Coach.

He was the Montreal Alouettes defensive line coach from 2008 through 2012. While with the Alouettes, he worked with Trestman, as the team won two Grey Cup Championships.

He began his coaching career as the defensive line coach for the Hamburg Sea Devils in NFL Europa in 1997. That year, the team won the World Bowl Championship.
