Who Will Be the Bears Next Head Coach? Favorites Include Jim Harbaugh, Brian Flores & Ryan Day
Odds to be Next Bears Head Coach Odds
via Maxim Bet
Bears fans: Welcome to a new era in Chicago.
The franchise earned a much-needed clean slate with the firings of general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy, who failed to put together a winning season in three straight years.
Odds to take the next coaching position feature a plethora of eyebrow-raising names, including a few former head coaches and a trio of college coaches out of the Big Ten.
Brian Flores (+400)
The Dolphins canned Flores in one of the league’s biggest shockers. He’s only 40 and a branch off the Belichick tree, so there’s no surprise to see him firmly in the mix.
Flores pulled Miami out of the basement in 2020, registering a 10-6 clip and second-place finish in the division. Despite a slow start this past season, the Dolphins ripped off eight of their final nine to turn in a winning record.
Jim Harbaugh (+500)
Will Harbaugh make a return to the NFL, where he hasn’t coached since 2014?
He’s fresh off his best season with the Michigan Wolverines, leading the team to a win over Ohio State and a bid to the College Football Playoff. Harbaugh took the job in 2015 and hasn’t yet been pried back to the pros.
He spent the first seven years of his playing career with the Bears, who drafted him in the first round.
Ryan Day (+1200)
How cool would it be to watch Ohio State head coach Ryan Day reunite with Justin Fields?
The tandem was deadly in Columbus from 2019-20, averaging more than 40 points per game in both seasons.
Chicago desperately needs to get the offense going – the Bears owned a bottom-10 scoring unit each of the last three years under Nagy.
