The Bears are currently coordinator-less but maybe not for long. They are set to resume their search for an offensive coordinator this weekend, NFL Network insider Michael Lombardi reports.
The Bears interviewed Chargers assistant head coach/tight ends coach Rob Chudzinski for their offensive coordinator vacancy Wednesday, becoming the latest name in the list of candidates. But many in the organization — more than 50, according to the team — were in South Carolina on Friday to pay their final respects to Gaines Adams.
When the search does resume, the spotlight could be on Chudzinski, who was the Browns’ offensive coordinator in 2007 under Romeo Crennel.
“I’m told that Rob Chudzinski seems to be one of the leading candidates,” Lombardi noted.
Chudzinski is the second candidate to interview for the job, following Bengals quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese. Others that have been tied to the job in published reports include Mike Martz and Paul Hackett.
