As we sit here today, the Chicago Bears have still yet to make a decision regarding Matt Nagy or Ryan Pace — at least not publicly. It will be interesting to see if one comes soon as the NFL owners officially voted to allow teams to start their head coaching interview process as early as the final two weeks of the season. The catch is that the team’s current NFL head coach must either be officially fired or at least notified that he will no longer be returning.

We have not seen the Chicago Bears come to this point yet. In fact, only the Las Vegas Raiders would currently be eligible. With the Vikings game approaching, the chances are that Matt Nagy will not be let go before that game. We cannot even count on the Chicago Bears taking advantage of the new rule. The team has never fired a coach before the end of a season before, but maybe now that there could be a competitive advantage the Bears will finally make the right move? I know, doubtful.

How did the stock change on potential replacements for Matt Nagy?

Last week we started this little adventure. It will be interesting to see how high these potential coaches can climb or how quickly they can fall. We have already seen some shifts within one week. In fact, one prior coach who was on this list has been removed to make way for one I overlooked last week — one who has been mentioned and was called out by my colleagues and even a few close friends.

With that, let’s take a look at this once again, shall we? Which one of these coaches should replace Matt Nagy next season? Are there others you’d rather consider that I am still missing?
