10 potenital defensive coordinators for Chicago Bears
7. Marv Lewis
After being the head coach for the Cincinnati Bengals from 2003-2018, Lewis has been working with Herm Edwards and helping Arizona State defense.
Pros: While many will laugh, Marvin Lewis turned the Bengals into a respectable franchise after years of being in the laughing stock. His teams did not win in the playoffs, but always made the playoffs, and it was always due to good defense. Some of those Bengals teams were pretty dangerous, too. Beyond that, Lewis is the type of coach who can turn things around in one year and knows how to fit the scheme to his talent.
Cons: This feels like Chuck Pagano all over again. Pagano had a lot of success as a coordinator, had a decent run as a head coach but had playoff failures. Both are respected around the league for an old school, tough presence, and dedication to fundamentals. If the Bears want fresh and new, this is not it.
