Chicago Bears Head Coach Candidate: Ryan Day – Stock Neutral

Last Week: Stock Up

Again, just like Jim Harbaugh, Ryan Day is not going to see his stock go up and down at this point. The idea of bringing in Justin Fields’ college coach — a coach he trusts and has seen success with while at Ohio State — makes complete sense. That doesn’t put Day into my top five, but he’s within the top 10 and definitely a coach I could see myself getting excited about.

Don’t forget, Ryan Day is the man who told Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace that Justin Fields is a generational talent. There haven’t been any rumors or traction that I have seen that Ryan Day would consider leaving Ohio State. Nor have I seen any reports that the Bears are even considering Day. That said, I think his stock is rising as NFL analysts and even fans have been throwing his name around often. Justin Fields clearly trusts Day and the two had great success together.

There is no guarantee that Ryan Day would be able to find success as a head coach in the NFL. He has very little NFL coaching experience and history shows that most college coaches fail to succeed.

Again, Day’s stock is on the rise more due to the media attention he is receiving. He should be a candidate the Bears consider though. Pairing Fields up with Day would be an interesting idea. For more on this coach, read our latest here.
