Since he was fired by the Chicago Bears following a disastrous three-year tenure as the team’s head coach, John Fox has not really made headlines regarding potential coaching vacancies around the NFL.
His days as a head coach in the league are all but over. Though, it now looks like Fox is mulling multiple offers to coach in the NFL this upcoming season.
“He’s gotten some offers to be senior defensive assistant, things like that,” Fox Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer said, via WGN Radio in 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 interesting thing to look at here is that it wouldn’t even be as a defensive coordinator where Fox made his name known with both the Raiders and Giants in the 1990s.
Fox, 62, posted a 14-34 record in three seasons as Chicago’s head coach. Prior to that, he led both the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos to a Super Bowl appearance.
It will definitely be interesting to see what comes of this. There’s no shortage of young head coaches who could use Fox’s veteran presence on the defensive side of the ball. That’s for sure.
