Hey, at least we actually got someone to come in for the interview, right? I’d say that’s progress compared to the last two front runners for the offensive coordinator job.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese has interviewed for the Bears vacant offensive coordinator position. According to at least one league source, Mike Martz figures his chances to become the Bears offensive coordinator are limited, so he recommended Zampese to Lovie.
Zampese would seem to be a good fit in some regards. He’s a young and hard working, so he may be willing to take a risk on Lame Duck Lovie and the Bears. According to the Tribune article, he is a stickler for mechanics, so that could bode well in trying to straighten out a lot of Jay Cutler’s mechanical flaws that surfaced during many of his league-leading 26 INT’s.
Zampese’s father Ernie hails from the Don Coryell coaching tree, known for high-powered and innovative offenses.
And hey, former Bears quarterback Craig Krenzel gives him his endorsement, so what could go wrong?
