Mike Martz Will Not Return To The Bears Next Season, According To Report

Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz will not return to the team in 2012, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter. Martz, whose contract is up at the end of the season, is reportedly interested in the open head coaching jobs at both UCLA and Arizona State.

For now, it's unknown how serious of a contender Martz is for either job. UCLA, after being turned down by Boise State's Chris Petersen, reportedly has their sights on University of Miami coach Al Golden. It has also been reported that the Bruins will make a run at Houston's Kevin Sumlin, who is currently the hottest name on the college coaching market. Arizona State meanwhile, reportedly has serious interest in current SMU, and ex-Hawaii coach, June Jones.
