In just a short couple of days, head coach Matt Nagy will inevitably be fired by the Chicago Bears. Then comes a time fans are ashamedly familiar with — finding a replacement.
The Bears have already had three head coaches since the days of Lovie Smith, and each one ended up being the wrong hire. Neither Marc Trestman, John Fox or Matt Nagy have been able to stand the test of time or lead the Bears to the promised land.
When Nagy is ultimately fired, the coaching search will be conducted with the first and foremost priority of developing franchise quarterback Justin Fields into the type of player he has the potential to be.
Fields has the raw athletic ability that any coach desires. We’re talking about a guy who stands 6-foot-3, weighs 228 pounds and ran a 4.5 in his 40-yard dash. The kid is built like a tank, can take off and run and also has an arm reminiscent of Jay Cutler.
The Chicago Bears could hire Jim Harbaugh away from Michigan in order to get the best out of Justin Fields.
One of the most notable candidates floating around the rumor mill is Jim Harbaugh, current head coach at Michigan.
His experience with quarterbacks is absolutely something that should be on the Bears’ radar. Over the past two decades, Harbaugh has worked with some immensely talented quarterbacks.
Some of these quarterbacks required Harbaugh to pull that immense talent out of, but he did it. There is no doubt he has a special prowess when it comes to the most important position in football, and Fields would greatly benefit from his leadership.
Just looking at the more notable quarterbacks Harbaugh has coached, the results were pretty fascinating.
