Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy could be replaced by Byron Leftwich

Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich is absolutely going to get head coaching interest after this season is up — or, rather, towards the end of the season, with the new rules in place.

Leftwich is one who a lot of fans are split on, though. There is an argument to be made that Leftwich has it easy, working with Tom Brady and that high-powered offense. He’s calling plays out of Bruce Arians’ offense, which makes it easy having the talent they do on that roster.

However, Arians has gone on record to say that he has given Leftwich full control of the offense. The head coach is not doing much when it comes to the offensive game plan, and that says a lot about Leftwich.

Sure, he has a ton of talent to work with. But, Leftwich has also been around a lot of personalities and star players. Not only Brady, but Rob Gronkowski, Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and a few more — there are a lot of players to manage, and Leftwich has done it well.

He’s also been part of the Pittsburgh Steelers organization, who have not been short on big name players on offense over the years. Leftwich knows how to manage personalities, and has proven he understands offenses. He’d be a well-deserved candidate in Chicago, without a doubt.
