Athe Bears play the waiting game with Vic Fangio to determine if heís in or out as the teamís defensive coordinator,
Womens Leonard Williams Jersey
, itís worth wondering what the timeline will be for a decision.
Fangio is out of contract after three seasons with the organization and he wants to ensure his choice of teams is the one that serves him best. The Bears certainly want Fangio to return after the improvements that have been made,

, especially in 2017 when the team ranked 10th in total defense despite weathering significant injuries.
There was risk in losing Fangio when the Bears chose Matt Nagy as their head coach on Monday,

, five days after Fangio was given the first of six interviews for the job. There was no guarantee the team would be able to retain Fangio and the Bears remain in limbo as to what direction they will take defensively under Nagy.
General manager Ryan Pace said Wednesday night during an appearance on WSCR-670 AM that he and Nagy were both in contact with Fangio. The lines of communication have remained open and clearly Fangio requested time to make a decision.
Nagy has made significant hires for his offensive staff,

Will Fangio make a decision before the divisional round playoff games this weekend? The Cardinals, Colts, Giants and Lions have yet to hire head coaches and movement for one or more of those franchises could come early next week,

, especially if some of the teams with head coaching candidates engaged in the playoffs (Patriots coordinators Josh McDaniels and Matt Patricia and Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur) wind up losing. Fangio is believed to be a possibility to take a job with Shurmur.
Gus Bradley was viewed as a top candidate as defensive coordinator for the Bears if Fangio were to leave but heís no longer an option after re-signing with the Chargers. Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards,

A source said Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher would be interested in talking to the Bears if the Cardinals donít promote him to head coach. Bettcher clearly isnít doing anything as long as heís in play for the Cardinalsí top spot.,
