Indianapolis Colts v Chicago Bears
Dave Toub Special-Teams coordinator
The Bears’ new coach might want to keep Toub, one of the best special-teams coaches in the league. But Toub might find greener pastures elsewhere. Like last year, he might even get some calls about being a head coach.
Bob Babich, Linebackers
Babich was Lovie Smith’s first hire, so he might be the first to go during the new coach’s makeover. He was the linebackers coach for seven years and the Bears’ defensive coordinator for two. Urlacher is a big fan of Babich’s.
