Wouldn't mind Nagy talking to Dick Lebeau

I don't want to hear any of the "the bears were in sub package 60% of the time" shit, I want a 3-4 coach. That's currently my only requirement.

Also, I don't want it to be Rex Ryan because I don't think he's a culture fit and I don't want the culture to change.

Off the radar, thinking young, Nagy's age - Chris Hewitt, secondary coach Baltimore Raven's

I posted this on the Fangio thread and it belongs here in this separate thread.

Since it's not going to be Bowles, it makes sense to look for other Saints (Pace) or Eagles/Chiefs connections. Gregg Williams fits that mold, though the whole BountyGate thing with the Saints might be enough to quash that. He's a little overrated, in my view, but could conceivably fill the Vic Fangio role of curmudgeon who knows how to whip the D into shape.

Mike Caldwell (Todd Bowles' asst head coach/ILB coach with the Jets) is probably in limbo right now, but appears to still be under contract. He'd need permission to make a lateral move (the NFL typically considers all asst coach positions to be at the same level). Importantly, you'd be projecting — he's not been in a coordinator role before.

One guy who has both Saints and Chiefs connections? Gary Gibbs. He's older (66), but has DC experience, knows people with the Bears, and isn't currently under NFL contract (is a "defensive analyst" with Okla St).

This is me.

Isn't Lebeau like 106 years old?

I am going to assume at this point that Donatell is off the board, and he is going to Denver.

I like the idea of Jay Rodgers or Mike Caldwell. Mike MacDonald seems to have some good chops, and has worked with a top defense in Baltimore. Clint Hurtt would be a great choice, and a Bears coaching alum.

Left field candidates could be Jerry Gray, the DB coach for the Vikings. He's been a DC before, and has helped put together a stout defense in Minnesota.

I don't want Williams or Ryan anywhere near Halas Hall. Just no.
