Jason La Canfora tweets that he “would not be surprised” if the Bears made a decision regarding who their next head coach will be at some point today.
La Canfora adds that his “guess” is that Bruce Arians gets the job.
This comes in contrast to several reports that suggest Alouettes’ head coach Marc Trestman is favorite for the job.
Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune reports that Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman is the “heavy favorite” to land the Bears job.
Bears GM Phil Emery reportedly will bring in two finalists on Tuesday to interview for the job. Trestman is clearly one of their top candidates at this point, but Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell and Colts OC Bruce Arians are both in play as well.
FOX analyst Jimmy Johnson tweeted that Trestman had the job last week, but it was hard to put a lot of stock in his tweet given that Johnson doesn’t have a history of breaking news.
We should know more regarding who the next Bears’ head coach will be by the end of the day.
