So does this mean that after they interview Nagy that they're going to pull the trigger on their favorite?

1. I’m on mobile.

2. I’m lazy.

3. It was less about the article and more about the idea the Bears could make an offer to someone after the Nagy interview.

Fangio is the key there. That's why Flip is probably the choice here.

Following up on that Gabriel post, if we get Flip and pair him with Fangio, Pettine or Pagano if he wants back in, I think we’ll be fine.

The Rams’ brass said similar things about Mcvay last year, but they decided they’d rather be a year too early than a year too late. If Flip is the guy, he’s the guy. And I’ll learn how to spell his name.

Eh... I understand on many boards with 1000 posters and 4000 trolls, that's a big commandment. Here if you have credibility summarization isn't as big of a deal in my opinion.

This is a real good sign, I think...
Word from a couple of non-Chicago sources say that Ryan Pace has been making very, very positive impressions in those interviews, based on what interviewees are telling others. This is significant.

Hence to why my thoughts a few days ago was to promote Fangio to HC and offer Flip the OC job. If they are smart and honest with each other this could work for all involved.

Flip is still young and unproven. It's an opportunity that he could really do himself good on. Sure he could possibly sign as a HC somewhere. Even if he gets an offer, is it best for him?

Give both 4yr contracts and tie them to Pace and Trubisky.

The problem is that if DeFillipo took an OC job here and was successful, he’d be gone next year. And Trubisky on his 3rd OC in 3 years. Not a good formula for developing a QB.

It would never happen. Fangio wouldn’t plan on walking out the door in 4 years, Flip would be looking for a head coaching job starting next season (which he would get with even modest success), and teams hate that sort of ambiguity.

So is Mullin saying we could get news on a new HC in the next 24-48 hrs before Fangio becomes a free agent? Could the Bears announce eg Flip, Shurmur or McDaniels now all of those are in their playoff prep week? I'm not so clued up on the rules. All I know is a 2nd interview of either of them couldn't take place until their team is knocked out or until after the championship games.

The Bears could announce that they’ve signed Vic to an extension, which would indicate that they’ve also come to an agreement with a new HC. But if the new HC was still in the playoffs (Eagles & Flip), they’d have to wait until their team was eliminated to make the official announcement.

Thanks. Suspected as much. Guess we're going have to play the patient waiting game. Which for long-suffering Bears fans is not easy.

From @dabearsblog. As with anything, take it with a grain of salt.

Little tidbit for Monday morning: There was a serious connection between Pace & McDaniels & the Pats OC emerged from round one of interviews as most impressive candidate.

To be honest...I am not convinced that the Bears are going to get this right. I heard on the radio that Ginny McCaskey put the Bears ownership in a Generational Skip Trust. Meaning that when she dies, the family members that inherit the team, are going to owe taxes on a $3B asset, which they can't afford. So the team will have to go up for sale when Ginny passes. I think that's when I will be convinced that the Bears will be on the right track.

Generation skipping transfer taxes are transferred at a much lower tax rate. It's also an installment tax.

I am always cynical when these guys start trumpeting their inside info and anonymous sources bullshit ... this is all an exercise on who can guess correctly first since it is very likely none of these asswads knows a whole lot more than we do

which is kind of sad since they are being paid to actually know more than the average fan base ... but they shoot themselves in the foot by their rush to be first over riding any effort to try to actually be correct

Sports Mockery, bastion of truth, chimes in with news from their "source."

“BEARS AND (JOSH) MCDANIELS TALKS ADVANCING. PACE HAS ZEROED IN ON MCDANIELS FROM THE START AND HAS MADE HIM HIS TOP TARGET AND THAT HASN’T AND WON’T CHANGE. PACE WILL GO ALL OUT AND FIGHT UNTIL THE END TO GET HIS GUY.”

“PACE IS AWARE JOSH IS IN HIGH DEMAND AND WON’T BE UPSET WITH THAT. JOHN (DEFILIPPO) HAS IMPRESSED HIM TO THE POINT IF HE MISSES ON MCDANIELS HE HAS NO PROBLEMS HIRING JOHN AS HE HIT A GRAND SLAM IN HIS INTERVIEW.”

Hopefully after the HC has been announced, it’ll be a little more clear which of these insiders had the legit sources.

Anyone have a pulse on what's going to happen? Local TV was stating that they think something will be announced this week, but it sounded like pure speculation.

McDaniels, I must say, excites the me most for being tied to Trubisky. That dude knows offensive football.

Can he be a leader of men, though? That's the biggest question mark I have... HOWEVER, I do think he needs some credit for developing Jimmy Garoppolo. Not a bad resume...
