Former Bills interim coach Perry Fewell was widely believed to be the heavy favorite for the Bears defensive coordinator job. It was supposed to be his job if he wanted it.
He interviewed Monday, and there is still no word about what Fewell will do next. He’s also the only man to have interviewed for the Giants defensive coordinator job.
A source close to Fewell tells the New York Daily News that the coach is “sorting through things.” Fewell hasn’t been given an offer yet, but is reportedly likely to get one if he decides what job he prefers between Chicago and New York.
It’s possible Fewell is waiting to hear back from Buffalo, where he interviewed for the head coaching job. The way that search is going, Fewell could be waiting a while just to hear that he didn’t get the job. (Leslie Frazier is reportedly the leader in the clubhouse.)
Chicago and New York can only wait for so long for Fewell to get off the course.
