Nobody knows what the Bears will do. But the latest interview would tell us the path involves Caleb Williams.

General manager Ryan Poles and head coach Matt Eberflus have decisions on top of decisions to make for the Chicago Bears. First, they need to first fill out coaching staffs on both offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Then, they need to determine a plan at the quarterback position.

While there are plenty of ways to do it, it's presumably going to come down to two options for the Bears. They will either keep quarterback Justin Fields and trade out of the number one overall pick in the upcoming draft, or they will trade Fields and take a quarterback number one overall.

USC quarterback Caleb Williams is the favorite to be the first player off the board on draft night, whether it's the Bears to take him or not. But the latest name reportedly set to interview for the offensive coordinator job would lead us to believe Williams would be a Bear if he were hired.

Kliff Kingsbury to interview for Bears' OC vacancy

Former NFL head coach and current USC quarterbacks coach Kliff Kingsbury appears to be next in line to interview for the Bears' OC job, according to Adam Schefter.

Over the years, Kingsbury has a history of working with quarterbacks such as Kyler Murray, Johnny Manziel, Baker Mayfield, and Patrick Mahomes. His latest stint in the NFL was as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals for four years. He was fired after the 2022 season.

We know the head coach experience was not so great for Kingsbury, but we've seen hints of his offenses flourishing if given the right talent. He obviously has a relationship with Williams at USC.

Should he come with him to the NFL, one would think Kingsbury would know how to build an offense around Williams and maybe bring the Bears back into contention soon.
