There are plenty of offensive coordinators that could be a Chicago Bears head coach.
Kellen Moore could be a good head coach.
Moore has been a head coaching candidate during past hiring cycles. He was the offensive coordinator of three top-10 offenses for the Dallas Cowboys
It was a shock when he and the Cowboys mutually agreed to part ways last offseason.
Moore is now calling plays for the Los Angeles Chargers, and they are currently second in the league in yards per game.
Quarterback Justin Herbert already has thrown for 939 yards and six touchdowns. Dak Prescott had two of his best seasons when Moore was calling the offense.
He has always been viewed as a brilliant offensive mind who can get the best out of quarterbacks. Maybe the Chicago Bears should make him the next head coach.
Ken Dorsey has a track record of developing great quarterbacks.
The Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator helped develop Cam Newton into an MVP quarterback when they worked together in Carolina. He also assisted Brian Daboll in getting Josh Allen to play at an elite level.
Dorsey was promoted to his current role after Daboll left to be the head coach of the New York Giants.
Buffalo’s offense is still humming with Dorsey calling the plays. Although, Allen has thrown more interceptions under Dorsey.
He interviewed for the Panthers opening last offseason so it is not like he has been thought of as being a head coach someday.
Dorsey also quarterbacked the University of Miami to its last national championship. This is a guy who understands what it takes to play and knows things when it comes to getting the best out of a young quarterback.
Ben Johnson is running a good offense in Detroit that he could bring to the Chicago Bears.
Johnson was promoted to offensive coordinator last season and the Lions offense took off. Jared Goff has become a solid NFL quarterback. Amon-Ra St. Brown has turned into one of the best wide receivers in the game.
A lot of Bears fans are hoping he will be the next head coach.
Johnson has also shown he can play call with the best of them. A good play-caller is something the Chicago Bears have lacked since George Halas stopped running the T-formation.
His offense is 3-0 against the Green Bay Packers, so Johnson also has that going for him.
It might be time to give Darrell Bevell his first official head coaching job.
Bevell has been an interim head coach twice but has never been offered the job officially.
A decade ago, he was considered a potential head coach and never got a job. His body of work is more than just making that bad pass play in Super Bowl XLVIII.
He developed Russell Wilson into one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL when they were together in Seattle. He also is credited with helping develop Tua Tagovailoa last year. Trevor Lawrence’s rookie season went all right when he was the offensive coordinator with Jacksonville.
Bevell has a track record of developing quarterbacks and producing good offenses.
Also working with Mike McDaniel in Miami might help add some of those Shanahan’s offensive concepts. Bevell does not get recognized as part of the tree as he was a long-time offensive coordinator before he came to the Dolphins.
