Bears Coordinator Search Getting Desperate

Mike Burzawa

Die hard Bears fan and lead blogger at Bear Goggles On

The Bears' search for an offensive coordinator keeps hitting roadblocks.  First choice Jeremy Bates is headed to Seattle and second choice Tom Clements won't be allowed to cross the Cheddar Curtain. Who;s left? 

Matt Bowen assessed the Bears coaching search on National Football Post.

Talking to people within the league and sources close to the Bears, the overwhelming assessment is that coaching in Chicago right now is a desperation job.

Not exactly how the clowns played if off a week ago at the Presser, huh?  I hate to say "I told you so, but, um, I told you so" well over a week ago

If you keep Lovie as head coach, what kind of offensive coordinator can you bring in to a situation with a potential lame-duck coach?  A vulture like Mike Martz looking for an angle to get his foot in the door to get a head coaching job?  No thanks.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.  Here's a list of dark horse candidates the Bears should be considering in slide show form.

You forgot Coach McGinty from The Replacements. If he can take a team of scrubs to the playoffs, just think what he can do with this group. On second thought...

LMAO, Boomer! I vote for Coach McGrath or Coach Harris. If they get hired by other teams, then I nominate Coach Nickerson (All The Right Moves) as my darkhorse!

You also forgot Eric Taylor of Friday Night Lights. He inexplicably taught high schoolers both I-form and spread offenses, and uses them interchangeably. Wife is a former school counselor who relates well to moody QBs.

But, but.....Lovie said assistant coaches would lining up for miles at the chance of being a part of this Chicago Bears coaching staff.....there must be a mistake! Why wouldn't an offensive and defensive coordinator want to come here for more than likely ONE YEAR before Lovie's fired?? Who needs job security, it's the Bears we're talking about! You know, MCCASKEY INC.
