With Jeremy Bates going to Seattle with Pete Carroll, the Bears offensive coordinator job lacks a clear favorite.
Mike Martz has reportedly been contacted by Chicago, and it looks like the team could reach out to other well known names. Comcast SportsNet’s Kip Lewis reports that Jim Zorn and Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride are candidates to join the Bears staff.
Zorn could be considered different job other than coordinator like quarterbacks coach. Gilbride’s name is a surprising one to hear because he is under contract with the Giants.
Other names ESPN’s Adam Schefter mentions as possibilities for the job include Falcons quarterback coach Bill Musgrave and University of Minnesota offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch. Like Bates, Fisch worked with Cutler in Denver.
