Twenty-five years after their Super Bowl XX win, head coach Mike Ditka and defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan will finally get together at "Glory Days: Legends of the Chicago Bears," a November 5 celebration of the 25th anniversary of Super Bowl XX at Arie Crown Theater, according to chicagobreakingsports.com.
Ditka was known for being the offensive mind behind the 1985 Bears, led by quarterback Jim McMahon, wide receiver Willie Gault, and running back Walter Payton.
Ryan lead the 46 defense, named after safety Doug Plank. It was led by defensive linemen Richard Dent and Dan Hampton and linebacker Mike Singletary.
The Bears went 15-1 in 1985, and their only loss was on Monday Night Football to the Miami Dolphins, 38-24.
Ditka and Ryan had a falling out before, during, and after the 1985 season, as Ryan thought he deserved some of the credit for the Super Bowl victory. Ditka acknowledged this in 2010, saying, "Without Buddy Ryan, we wouldn't have won the championship, it's that simple. Those guys believed in him, and they believed in everything he did."
