Found January 28, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that former Bears head coach Lovie Smith expects to sit out the 2013 season and pursue a head coaching position next season. This is somewhat interesting given that there are a few defensive coordinator jobs available including the Eagles and Saints and Smith is widely regarded as one of the best defensive coaches in the game. Both of those team’s are expected to implement 3-4 defensive schemes next season and Smith is known for Tampa-2 defense, so it’s not as though he would be a great fit for either team. Smith interviewed for a number of jobs, but never emerged as a serious candidate for any of the available jobs. He’s a good enough coach that he should find interest next season, but it’s hard to say that for sure that he’ll end up with a head coaching job.

Chicago Bears Film Evaluation: Aaron Kromer's Run Scheme

New Chicago Bears offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Aaron Kromer held two positions with the Saints, offensive line coach/running game coordinator.  Based on Marc Trestman's QB coach offensive coordinator background in the west coast offense it's probably safe to assume that Kromer will be in charge of the running game in Chicago.  With that in mind I went...
