10:25 AM ET 01.12 | A big name who really could excite Bears fans became a player in the search for Lovie Smith's replacement Friday. But Jimmy Johnson is not going to be the next coach of the Bears. Instead, he indicated he might have some inside information on who will be. "Looks like 2 of my guys getting NFL jobs ... Chud Cleveland and my QB coach at U Trestman to Chicago," Johnson tweeted. The only problem with what Johnson tweeted is the Bears seemingly are not close to naming a head coach. In fact, Emery still has initial interviews scheduled. Saturday, he is set to meet with Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell in Atlanta. Sunday, he is supposed to interview Colts offensive coordinator and NFL coach of the year candidate Bruce Arians. Trestman said Johnson's statement was not accurate. "I have not heard from the Bears and have responded in that manner on multiple levels," Trestman wrote in an email to the Montreal Gazette.

Just to keep it straight. The Bears are looking to hire a head coach, right?

I think that Marc Trestman would be a good choice here. He's had success everywhere he's coached, and would be a refreshing change to the retread option.

Now when has Jimmy Johns ever lied to anyone?

He damn sure didn't lie to Curvin Richards.

I believe his words were, "you drop the damn ball again your gone".

Too bad Chud got the Cleveland job. (Well, I mean good for him and I hope it works out and all.)

I was kind of hoping Arians would have been given the nod... boost the rivalry a bit. I miss the Browns.

I forget (again) how to imbed videos. Maybe it's

Phil Emery os certainly interviewing enough people for the job... I think the the candidate count is now up to 13.

Being thorough is important, but this is approaching overkill status.
