According to 670 The Score in Chicago, the Bears recently reached out to CBS analyst Bill Cowher to assess his interest in the team’s head-coaching job should current head coach Lovie Smith be fired.
-The Score’s Hub Arkush claims his source for the report is “impeccable,” despite all of the Bears’ denials. Bill Cowher has previously stated that he would not speak to any teams until the season is over, but perhaps made an exception here. According to Profootballtalk.com, there are “rumors” that Cowher is interested in working for either the Bears or Texans.
I hope this rumor is true, because the Bears need some change and they need it fast. The problem is the Bears owe Lovie Smith $10 million dollars over the next two seasons. They clearly need a new offensive coordinator. Head coach may be to expensive for the Bears management.
