Marc Trestman has been fired after going 13-19 in his two seasons in Chicago. The Bears will begin the search for the next head coach. Other head coaching vacancies have also opened up in Atlanta, San Fransisco, New York Jets, and likely Oakland.
With Jim Harbaugh going to the University of Michigan, Bears will be without one of their top choices. However, there are plenty of other possibilities and coaching for the Chicago Bears is a job that many would love.
Some of the top names include:
Todd Bowles (currently ARZ Defensive Coordinator)
Darrell Bevell (currently SEA Offensive Coordinator)
Dan Quinn (currently SEA Defensive Coordinator)
Mike Shanahan (former SuperBowl winning coach of the Broncos and also drafted Jay Cutler)
Rex Ryan (former NYJ head coach and son of ’85 Bears Defensive Coordinator, Buddy Ryan)
Teryl Austin (currently DET Defensive Coordinator)
Adam Gase (currently DEN Offensive Coordinator)
Update: Bears looking at Ravens OC and former Texans HC, Gary Kubiak
