There may be no hotter name on the coaching wire than current New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.


Plenty of teams want the ex-Broncos head coach to make another run as head man after a relatively underwhelming attempt in Denver from 2009-10. And after all the success he's had in New England, in addition to being a product of the Bill Belichick system, he deserves all the attention.


That's why the Bears are hoping to grab his attention.

With John Fox predictably out after three consecutive last-place finishes in the NFC North, a change was inevitable. They're also interested in Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur.


The Bears sport an incredibly underrated defense along with a promising rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who, with a little bit of polish, could turn out to be everything the franchise hoped he would be when they traded up to the No. 2 pick in last year's draft to get him.

It still remains to be seen whether McDaniels is willing to leave the comfort of an organization that just got its own private team jet, but the offers—and there sure are many of them—may just be too good to turn down.
