Aaron Kromer is the current offensive coordinator coach for the Chicago Bears of the NFL.

He coached the 2000 Northwestern football camp. He is a 1985 graduate of Margaretta High School, in Castalia, Ohio, where he played football and basketball.

Kromer was hired by the New Orleans Saints in 2008 as the running backs coach, before becoming the offensive line coach the following season. Under his tenure as OL coach, the Saints sent five players to a combined nine Pro Bowls, and tied for the fewest sacks in the league with 96.[1] Under Kromer, the Saints line twice won the Madden Most Valuable Protectors Award as the best offensive line in the league (in 2009 and 2011).[2] Kromer filled in as the Saints' interim head coach for the first six games of the 2012 NFL season as Joe Vitt served his six-game suspension.[3]

On January 16, 2013, Kromer was announced as the new Offensive Coordinator/Offensive Line coach for the Chicago Bears. He joined Marc Trestman's initial coaching staff, after working with Trestman in Oakland.[4] In his first year, the Bears offense had the second-best scoring offense in the league with 445 points, behind the Denver Broncos, while finishing fifth with 4281 yards.[5] The offense also broke team records in total yards (6,109), passing yards (4,450), passing touchdowns (32) and first downs (344).[6] On February 12, 2014, offensive line assistant Pat Meyer was named offensive line coach while Kromer, who served as offensive coordinator and line coach in 2013, remains the offensive coordinator and will continue to be involved in all aspects of the offense, including the line with an increased role with the passing game.[7]
