A medical school graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Dr. Morris Kharasch serves as the chief of emergency medicine at NorthShore University HealthSystem. Outside his professional life, Dr. Morris Kharasch follows Chicago’s sports teams, and is especially a fan of the Bears.

Longtime Chicago cornerback Charles Tillman recently returned to the team on a one-day ceremonial contract, ensuring he will retire as a member of the Bears.

A second round draft choice in 2003, Tillman played 12 seasons in Chicago before departing last year as a free agent, signing with the Carolina Panthers, where he appeared in 12 games. Tillman is third in Bears team history with 36 interceptions, trailing only Gary Fencik and Richie Pettibon. He is also the all-time team leader in defensive touchdown, interception return yards, and interception return touchdowns.

Tillman retired during the offseason and will take a role as a pre-game analyst for FOX Sports, joining former Bears head coach Dave Wannstedt, Colin Cowherd and host Clarissa Thompson for the Sunday morning broadcast.
