Mr. Scot

Updated Assistant Coach Options

There's no indication he was ever in any mix except for loose speculation.

Until somebody is hired he is as much in the mix as anyone else

Word that new Bear Head Coach Marc Trestman has officially released some of the coaches from Lovie Smith's staff. That list includes Mike Tice and runningback coach Tim Spencer.

If Spencer is the guy Rivera had in mind to take over the RB coaching, he's now free to go after him.

No word on Bob Babich, but he's well liked in Chicago so it'd be no shock if they kept him.

Official word from Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times. Bob Babich won't be retained in Chicago.

Would love to see him here.

Rivera tried to hire Babich when he first got the Panthers job, but he stayed in Chicago.

His son is on staff as a second level defensive assistant.(not listed on the coaching page).

It'd be a natural pickup. And imagine for a moment what the guy who's been coaching Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs since 2004 could do with Luke Kuechly.

hmm. Jeremy Bates.

That wouldn't be the worst QBs coach.

Backfilling for Shula? Not sure how much I like that side of it.

Shocked he was let go. Didn't Cutler throw a fit when Denver didn't keep him?

yeah, he did.

I don't know that Shula's the best option - Hue is, IMO - but if both are on staff, that'd be neat. Bates, same thing.

Word conveyed by our resident Charger fan that Babich may get the DC job in Jacksonville :(
