Zorn and Gilbride Latest Names to Surface in Bears Coordinator Search


Now that Jeremy Bates is off to Seattle, a couple of new names have bubbled to the surface as candidates in the Great Coordinator Search: Jim Zorn and Kevin Gilbride.  CSN Chicago’s Kip Lewis  is reporting:

"Gilbride could potentially join the team as the offensive coordinator, whereas Zorn could serve as either the quarterbacks’ coach, the offensive coordinator, or both."

CSN was the first to report that Lovie wasn’t going anywhere, so maybe they’re not completely full of it.

Wouldn’t it be fitting that the guy who got his defensive playcalling responsibilities stripped from him (Lovie) hires a guy who had his offensive playcalling duties taken away (Zorn) last season?  At least they’ve got something in common, right?
