Bears special teams coordinator Dave Toub leads the list of possible Lovie Smith successors.

We have our first candidate!  I read Mike Mulligan's piece in the Sun Times today and jumped for joy.  The focus of his article?  That special teams coordinator Dave Toub is a likely candidate to replace Lovie Smith.   Let's have a look at what Mully gives us:

The Bears' head coach-in-waiting is none other than special-teams coordinator Dave Toub, who once again is having a stellar season. One source close to ownership said Toub even would be on the short list for head coach if the Bears were to make a move.

''The McCaskeys are Bears fans and have a great sense of team history,'' the source said.

While I'm excited that Toub would be a candidate - I've long said that he has the right stuff to run a team - I am more excited for another reason. 

The fact that Mully's source has a name means that there has been a discussion at Halas Hall.  You don't come up with a "short list" if you haven't given firing Lovie some serious thought.

So you're sayin' there's a chance???
