After a disappointing 5-11 season, the Bears have found their replacement for Marc Trestman to lead the Bears this year. The Bears have reportedly hired John Fox to become the next head coach for the Chicago Bears. Fox, who was the Broncos coach during the last NFL season, parted ways with Denver after their divisional round lost versus the Colts.
John Fox had previously been a head coach with the Panthers and Broncos prior to the Bears hiring him. Of course Fox has been to the Super Bowl one time with the Broncos. According to multiple media sources, Fox is expected to bring in Dennis Allen as his defensive coordinator.
