Front Runner Reportedly Emerging In The Chicago Bears Head Coach Search

Leslie Frazier may not be the most popular hire for Chicago Bears fans hoping for an offensive guru to come mentor Justin Fields. But according to a report, Frazier might be the leader.

Sports Illustrated’s Albert Beer wrote a column on his thoughts about which coaches will fill vacancies around the league. And when writing about the Bears, Breer claimed that Frazier’s name was being thrown around by multiple people in the NFL.

“The name that’s consistently come up with the Bears is Bills defensive coordinator, and former Vikings coach, Leslie Frazier. He’s got experience and the leadership traits they’re looking for, with obvious ties to the franchise from his days as a Bears defensive back in the ’80s, and he’s also got connections with Bill Polian, who has a strong voice in the search, having been hired to consult. Polian and Frazier won a Super Bowl together in Indianapolis. (It’s worth noting that Jim Caldwell has connections to Polian too),” he wrote.

Leslie Frazier has ties to Chicago. He was a member of the historic Bears 1985 defense that would go on to win the Super Bowl (the last one the Bears won).

According to the Bears, Frazier will be coming in for an interview later in the week. The team has already conducted an interview with Bills OC Brian Daboll. And they’ve interviewed Buffalo exec Joe Shoen for their vacant GM role.

Perhaps Leslie Frazier will end up being the guy to replace Matt Nagy in Chicago. But I wouldn’t expect the team to rush to a decision any time soon.
