12:42 PM ET 01.01 | The Chicago Bears have done two things. The first, and most obvious, is that they've fired long tenured head coach Lovie Smith after yet another season without a playoff berth. But the other things they've demonstrated is they like to dip into the Bucs' camp and root around, seeing if there's anything they want. Of course, Brian Price and Amobi Okoye weren't mainstays in Tampa, but they both managed to end up with the Chicago Bears. Mike Sullivan is on his way to being a mainstay, but the Bears may want to pluck him before that happens. Per the Chicago Sun-Times, the Bears are expected to interview Mike Sullivan to possibly fill their head coaching void left by the firing of Lovie Smith.

Will they settle for the first coach they interview? I doubt it.

Is there no assistant that's safe from a head coaching interview?
