While we’re not sure whether he has a window or aisle seat, former Bears coach Lovie Smith is apparently on his way to interview with the Chargers.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Smith is at an O’Hare Airport gate, about to board a plane bound for San Diego.
Smith interviewed with the Eagles yesterday, and frankly should have been in higher demand. His 81-63 record speaks to a consistency not many franchises looking for coaches have enjoyed.
While there was a recent playoff drought, the guy went to a Super Bowl with Rex Grossman as his quarterback, which speaks to his acumen.
