The Bears fired head coach John Fox on Monday, which leaves members of Fox’s staff looking for new homes for the 2018 season.

Among those coaches is offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, who came to the Bears in 2015 as the quarterbacks coach. He was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2016 after Adam Gase left to become the head coach in Miami and Loggains may be joining up with Gase again in 2018.

According to multiple reports, Loggains is in Miami on Tuesday talking to Gase about a role on the Dolphins staff. It’s not clear what the role would be as Clyde Christensen is the team’s offensive coordinator and Bo Hardegree is the quarterbacks coach, although all that should be worked out fairly easily if all involved want to work together.

The Bears finished 29th in points scored and 30th in offensive yards during a 2017 season that saw them bench initial starting quarterback Mike Glennon in favor of rookie Mitch Trubisky after four games.

  1. Reuniting him with that other offensive powerhouse, Jay Cutler?!
    Isn’t the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results?

  2. Great, another Chicago retread ….

    Gase needs to quit trying to be comfortable and hire outside the box …

  3. As long as he’s out of Chicago, I’m happy. Guy did have some cool trick plays, though.

  4. Does anybody knew what this guy can do to turn the Dolphins around? I like Gase but if this is the 1st guy he calls after this years Dolphin performance then the Fins are in bigger trouble than I thought.

  5. Gase picks weak assistants who don’t threaten his job. Why would anybody want the Bears oc? That offense sucked. This is disturbing.

    Call Jim Caldwell! Sheesh!

  6. Offensive Coordinator…, run, pass….probably punt….then….run…run…pass…then probably punt.

  7. Gase has to surround himself with, smart players and hungry players. I didn’t think we were a particularly good team last year but what ever we had we didn’t have it this year. Maybe everybody thought once you have it it’s there for keeps and all you have to do is roll up. I just hope Gase and his players got so humbled that what they had last year will return. It wasn’t a lack of effort, they play hard imo but they fell short of certain standards required to win more than you lose in elite professional team sports. Gase has to follow this year up with a min 9&7 or he’s gone I fear.
