The list of finalists for the Bears head coaching job is continuing to take shape.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bears want to have second interviews with Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and former Lions and Colts head coach Jim Caldwell. The team had already set up a second interview with Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, who is set to meet with them on Wednesday.

While a second round is taking shape, the Bears still have a first interview with Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen on tap for Tuesday.

Quinn is also reportedly a finalist for the Broncos job and he also interviewed with the Vikings and Dolphins. Caldwell interviewed for the Jaguars and denied an ESPN report that he declined interview requests from the Raiders and Vikings.

  1. What happened to Matt Campbell at Iowa State? This time last year he was a hot candidate. Now we’re taking recycled head coaches again?

  2. The fact that the Bears get it wrong every time tells me both of these guys are the wrong choice. I think Caldwell is a better HC but not sure either is the one to lead you to the promised land.

  3. The Bears search has been interesting if nothing else.
    Maybe they’ll get it right but history says otherwise.

  4. I’m guessing they’re not talking to Daboll anymore because they know they’ve already lost out on him and/or their GM finalists nixed him.
