USA TODAY Sports

Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus now appears to be a serious candidate for a pair of head coaching jobs.

According to multiple reports, Eberflus will have a second interview with the Bears next week. He first met with Chicago on January 17.

Eberflus has been with the Colts since 2018 as the club’s defensive coordinator. he previously worked with the Cowboys and Browns.

Eberflus has also drawn interest from the Jaguars, who are set to interview him for a second time on Thursday. With the Bears also interested in Eberflus, Jacksonville may want to pull the trigger sooner than later on hiring him.

As a defensive coach by trade, Eberflus will have to craft a strong offensive staff to develop a young quarterback at either destination.

  1. If the Jaguars and the Bears are the teams interested in him, every other team looking for a coach should run in the other direction.

  2. Why dont they interview Matt LaFluers brother? Would be intersting to see two brothers coaching that rivalry.

  3. Sure seems like the Bears are leaning toward defense in their HC due diligence. A little odd considering their defense only needs better players at a few positions whereas their offense needs a complete rebuild from the ground up. But Bears fans have learned to expect the unexpected.

  4. Please for the love of all that’s holy – Get Leftwich or Daboll!!! Someone that’s goung to help Fields.

    I agree, but let’s be clear that the GM will be the one to bring in those players. Bears need to make sure to hire the right guy to develop Justin Fields, but also to lead the team once Fields is ready. Could be the right guy is a Defensive mind and hire a good OC. No guarantee for success either way…
