ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson compiled a list of potential coaches who could take the Bears job if they decide to fire John Fox. To no one’s surprise but former Bears QB and Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh makes the list:
There’s no guarantee Harbaugh leaves the University of Michigan, but he has to be on the potential list to replace Fox given his ties to the organization. Drafted by the Bears in the first round in 1987, Harbaugh spent seven seasons in Chicago. Harbaugh’s tenure in San Francisco ended badly, but he helped the Niners reach three consecutive NFC Championship Games and Super Bowl XLVII. Harbaugh will want lots of money and power to leave Michigan, but the Bears fan base would love the move. Harbaugh’s ornery disposition is often reminiscent of former Bears coach and Chicago icon Mike Ditka, who Harbaugh played for.
