Chicago Bears Head Coach Making the case: Jim Schwartz
Who will be the Chicago Bears head coach in 2018?
The Chicago Bears are about five days away from moving on from John Fox. It is unclear who they have in mind to replace him, and they will likely explore their options. Over the coming weeks, we will highlight a coaches rumored to be potential candidates for promotion this offseason and make the case for, and against their chances of being the Chicago Bears new head coach. This edition will be Jim Schwartz.
Jim Schwartz turned the Eagles defense into a contending defense. He has gotten the most out of Ndamukong Suh as a head coach with the Lions, Marcell Dareus, as the defensive coordinator of the Bills, and now Fletcher Cox with the Eagles. Just imagine what he can do with Akiem Hicks.
This would be Schwartz second stint as head coach and given his issues with Matthew Stafford in his last chance, he should understand the importance of hiring a big-time offensive coordinator for his quarterback.
He is a 4-3 coach and the Bears are a 3-4 defense. He will have to make a strong decision as to on how often he wants Leonard Floyd to drop into coverage because that is a key to his game, but not something Schwartz typically does.

He is a defensive guy on a team that has their strength on defense and he would need to come in with a really impressive plan at quarterback. Jim Schwartz is not an option for the Bears. Even if they went for a defensive coach, it would not be Schwartz.
