Last week, Hub Arkush of 670 The Score in Chicago created a major stir by reporting that the Bears had made inquiries regarding a possible change at the position of head coach and G.M.
A team source denied it, and many pointed out (privately and otherwise) that Arkush may have an axe to grind because he was fired from the franchise’s radio team several years ago.
(Sorry, but we can’t imagine a guy putting his reputation on the line in the name of spite.)
Now, Arkush reports that the Bears reached out to none other than Bill Cowher.
Cowher has said that he’ll talk to no teams who have head coaches currently in place. But rumors have indicated that he’d be interested in working both for the Bears and the Texans.
Still, we can’t imagine the Bears buying out coach Lovie Smith and G.M. Jerry Angelo and then paying Cowher upwards of $10 million per year.
