Chicago Bears will start head coaching interviews on Wednesday

USA TODAY Sports

Bears will interview at least three coaches from around the league.

The Chicago Bears will start interviewing potential head coaches Wednesday, according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times.

The Bears are trying to replace Lovie Smith, who was fired Monday. Smith coached the Bears for nine seasons, including in 2006, when the Bears went to the Super Bowl against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Bears have already asked and received permission to interview various coaches from around the league, according to ESPN. The Bears will interview, amongst others, Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Atlanta Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan.

In Smith's time, the Bears went 81-63 and won the NFC North three times. The team was 3-3 in the playoffs under Smith.

After starting this season 7-1, the Bears fell off the map, going 3-5 the rest of the way. Chicago finished with a 10-6 record, which was good enough for 3rd in the NFC North.
