After spending two seasons and winning two national championships as Alabama's wide receivers coach, Mike Groh is heading to the pros.

Groh will join the Chicago Bears as wide receivers coach, multiple media outlets reported Thursday.

Groh, 41, is the last addition to the staff of new Bears coach Marc Trestman, according to the Chicago Tribune.

A quarterback for the University of Virginia in the early 1990s, Groh went on to serve as wide receivers coach and quarterbacks coach for his alma mater. He worked his way up to being the Cavaliers' offensive coordinator from 2006-08.

Groh served as a graduate assistant for national champion Alabama in 2009 before spending a year as Louisville's quarterbacks coach. He returned to the Crimson Tide for the past two championship seasons.

Groh's father, Al, was the head coach of the New York Jets in 2000. Al Groh also had stints as the head coach at Wake Forest and Virginia, plus numerous stops as an assistant at the college and pro levels.
