Things are getting hilarious in Chicago. This week, we heard that the Chicago Bears have already told Matt Nagy he will be fired.
Then, Nagy told us himself that he had not been informed of such news.
It’s like a circus, quite frankly. The Bears have botched this entire situation to the point where it doesn’t even matter what reports come out at this stage. Nagy is going to be fired, and that’s the end of the story.
One particular candidate to replace Nagy happens to be familiar with Chicago, and he is reportedly mulling a return to the NFL. Current Michigan Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh would be interested in coming back to the pros, and specifically could be intrigued by both the Bears and Las Vegas Raiders coaching jobs.
Jim Harbaugh would be an excellent fit with the Chicago Bears, and could put together an impressive staff.
After losing the Orange Bowl to Georgia, reports started surfacing, questioning whether Harbaugh would leave Michigan to pursue a job in the NFL once again. While he’s had some success with the Wolverines, a return to the NFL has to be more and more attractive to Harbaugh — especially considering he could work with a kid like Justin Fields.
We know how much Harbaugh loves his quarterbacks.
If Harbaugh was indeed hired to replace Nagy, he would likely want to build his own staff. That means guys like Bill Lazor and Sean Desai would be let go. Maybe, Desai sticks around to help coach in some fashion. But, Harbaugh would probably want to bring in his own staff.
With that said, there are several names he’s worked with in the past which could be candidates for the Bears to bring on alongside Harbaugh.
