Trestman is trying to buck tradition by changing the Bears from a defensive-oriented franchise to a team that can play with the best offensive teams.
The 40-year-old McCoy replaces Norv Turner, who was fired along with general manager A.J. Smith after the Chargers finished 7-9 and missed the playoffs for the third straight season.
Bears general manager Phil Emery has reportedly narrowed down his search to three.
The Bears’ coaching search is expected to heat up this week as many of Phil Emery’s candidates were eliminated from the playoffs over the weekend.
Happy New Year. Let’s be honest—2012 really sucked for Chicago sports. Outside of college football, with the either loved or hated Notre Dame, Northwestern being above average in a bad B1G conference, and the 14 people that were Northern Illinois football fans before the season started, rooting for teams here was very banana-esque.
This is the first in a series where I take a look at some of the top candidates, providing information on their background, strengths, scheme, and what skill position players the Bears would need to add to properly execute their system. First up is Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy.
Bears general manager Phil Emery has another name on his list of head coaching candidates.
The Bears are in the process of trying to find a head coach because of their inability to build a consistent offense in the Lovie Smith tenure.
We’re just minutes into the post-Lovie Smith era, but as we await official word from general manager Phil Emery, I thought I’d take a quick glance at a few names to watch for the Bears’ new head coaching vacancy.
