What other openings are there that I am forgetting?

This is making wonder if the bears already have their guy and are just double checking their work. The top candidates are being signed elsewhere. The bears having the best defense and a lot of studs locked up, this should have had a line out the door. This has to be an in house promotion or a college coach being brought up?

I think it means Donatell, Pagano, and maybe one other mystery coach (Harris?)

The fact that the Bears are holding a presser Monday afternoon lends me to believe they want to wrap this up prior to then. Or maybe not.... who knows.

I'm in on Pagano over Donatell.

Pagano and Fangio worked together in Baltimore.

Wonder if Vic suggested Pagano when accepting the job in Denver.

One interesting thing is that the Bears Safety Coach since 2017 Roy Anderson worked for Pagano in Baltimore and then went with him to Indianapolis. Could help Pagano transition if he is the guy.

Also looking at the Bears defensive assistants. Outside of Donatell they seem to be John Fox hires. Jay Rodgers came from Denver with Fox for example. He's one guy I would want to keep even if Pagano comes in.
