Jay Glazer of FOX Sports told Adam Hoge of WGN on Thursday that former Bears HC John Fox is mulling over coaching offers.
“He’s gotten some offers to be senior defensive assistant, things like that,” Glazer said, via NBC Chicago. “I don’t know if he’s going to jump into the media side of it. He’s kind of mulling some offers whether or not he wants to coach.
“The coaching bug is not out of him yet.”
Fox told Mike Klis last month that he has no plans to retire from coaching and instead plans to see if he can find a job after all of the available head-coaching jobs are filled.
Fox, 62, began his NFL coaching career with the Steelers back in 1989 as their defensive backs coach back. He worked a number of teams including the Chargers, Raiders, Rams and Giants before the Panthers hired him as their head coach in 2002.
After nine years in Carolina, Fox was hired by the Broncos as their coach for the 2011 season. Denver elected to part ways with Fox after four seasons and he joined the Bears a year later where he remained for the past three seasons.
For his career, Fox is 133-123 (52 percent), which includes seven playoff appearances and two trips to the Super Bowl.
