Chicago Bears Head Coach Candidate: Leslie Frazier – Stock Up

Although I do not agree with it, Leslie Frazier’s stock is on the rise when it comes to being the next Chicago Bears head coach. The rumors started this week as ESPN’s Dan Graziano wrote “there’s a bit of smoke connecting Bills defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier to Chicago.”

Excuse me while I threw up in my mouth a little. Honestly, the Chicago Bears have a tendency to bounce back and forth from defensive-minded to offensive-minded coaches — Lovie Smith to Marc Trestman to John Fox to Matt Nagy. Hiring Leslie Frazier would fall into that same pattern and honestly would be the type of move I see this organization making. Not to mention he played for Chicago from 1981 to 1985 — becoming a key cog in their Super Bowl defense.

The problem is, I don’t want any part of it. If Frazier wants to come to be the defensive coordinator here in Chicago, so be it. Head coach though? No thank you. Did the front office forget how bad Frazier was in Minnesota? Despite a 10-6 record in 2012, Frazier finished his head coaching career with a record of 21-32-1. Why move backward from Matt Nagy? Just please no.
