Lovie Smith is back in business in the NFL.
The Chicago Bears have hired Marc Trestman to become the team’s 14th head coach.
The Bears haven’t even finished their interviews, but there are already reports that the team has made its pick to succeed Lovie Smith.
Bears general manager Phil Emery said Tuesday it was a “tough decision” to fire Lovie Smith as head coach after nine years on the job, but he said the team did not have enough offensive success under Smith, and it was time to go in a new direction.
Mike Tice was recently named Bears offensive coordinator, but it’s possible he could be headed somewhere else, as the Raiders reportedly want to interview him for their head coaching vacancy.
Illinois coach Ron Zook was fired Sunday after the Illini followed a 6-0 start to this season with a six-game losing streak.
For whatever reason there are many people in this city that feel the suddenly available Jeff Fisher would be an improvement as Bears head coach in comparison to Lovie Smith.
It wasn’t going to be Jim Harbaugh or Les Miles, but Michigan finally found the new man to lead their program back into relevance. And he might be a better fit than who Michigan fans initially wanted.
According to multiple reports, former Bears’ linebacker and defensive coordinator Ron Rivera will be named the next head coach of the Carolina Panthers.
Les Miles earned the nickname “Mad Hatter’ for is unconventional, and sometimes head-scratching, play calls. Despite those questionable calls, Miles has had plenty of success coaching at LSU.
Ron Rivera was the defensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears when they went to the Super Bowl in the 2006 season. And according to a report, is close to becoming the next head coach of the Carolina Panthers.
Jim Harbaugh’s not coming. And Pat Fitzgerald isn’t either. But Les Miles still might be. Or maybe it’ll be Brady Hoke, some mystery candidate or, hmm…
