I know Jim Harbaugh has been reported to have accepted the job at the University of Michigan, but I would think the Bears job would be a perfect fit for him. Harbaugh was a QB for the Bears under Mike Ditka and he would bring the toughness the team was lacking under Trestman. I think he’s an NFL guy not a college coach anymore. Could this firing of Trestman be timed to get Harbaugh to listen to a job offer from the Bears? I hope so.
Also, he could light a fire under that talented but gutless wonder Jay Cutler.
