The man we once loved to call Meathead could be heading back to the NFC North.
Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune reports that former Vikings coach Mike Tice will be interviewing with the Bears. Since Tice never has been an offensive coordinator, it’s possible that he’s being considered for some other role.
Tice currently is the assistant head coach/offense in Jacksonville. The fact that he’s interviewing in Chicago means that the Jaguars have given him permission to interview elsewhere.
Tice’s departure would remove a strong Jack Del Rio ally from the Jaguars locker room.
Last week, reports emerged that former Ravens coach Brian Billick had contacted Tice regarding the possibility of joining Billick’s staff in Buffalo. But with the Bills coaching search bogged down, it appears that Billick currently isn’t getting strong consideration for the job.
