Alum Watch: Mike Tice

I just want to give a quick shout-out here to former Vikings head coach Mike Tice (an offensive line coach for the Chicago Bears this season):

It was announced the other day that Tice will become the offensive coordinator of the Bears, taking over for Mike Martz. I'm guessing that the Bears wanted to dumb-down the offense just a bit after the fiasco of losing Cutler this year and being utterly unable to compete in Martz's terminology-heavy system.

I always liked/supported Tice when he was here and never felt he really got a fair shake with this organization. He struck me as a down-to-earth, "everyman" type of coach (or the mirror opposite of, say, a Brad Childress), and I could always respect a guy like that (even when he did pull stunts like running wind sprints and pulling up lame!).

So, congrats to you, Mr. Tice, on your promotion and I look forward to our Vikings bludgeoning Jay Cutler in 2012 (and isn't that just a pleasant image for the off-season?!).
