After the Broncos and coach John Fox had the closest thing yet to an actual “mutual parting,” word quickly emerged that Fox would become the top candidate in Chicago.
He has and he is. But contrary to at least one published report, it’s not a done deal yet.
It very well could be, in time. But new G.M. Ryan Pace is taking him time. It’s the most important hire he will make, and too many first-year General Managers have doomed their tenures by making a bad decision when hiring a head coach.
It would be a surprise if Fox doesn’t get the job. But he hasn’t gotten it yet.
