Could John Fox End Up Coaching the Giants in 2018? And Other Bullets

Chicago Bears News, Chicago Bears Rumors, NFL News and Rumors

Time is ticking on the John Fox era in Chicago, but the Bears head coach isn’t worried about his job status. And why would he? Fox has nearly two decades of head coaching experience and another seven years or so as an assistant.

Odds are that Fox will be unemployed only for as long as he wants to be. In fact, he could be lined up to be a head coach sooner, rather than later:

The New York Giants recently hired former Carolina Panthers GM Dave Gettleman to take over that same position. Gettleman worked with the Giants from 1998-2012 serving as a scout, pro personnel director, and senior pro personnel analyst before moving on to the Panthers in 2013. That means Gettleman and Fox crossed paths while Fox was the Giants defensive coordinator from 1997 until 2001.

Then there’s Ernie Accorsi, who was hired as a consultant to the Giants before hiring Gettleman. If you’ll recall, the Bears hired Accorsi in the same role when the team hired Fox in 2015. History has a weird way of repeating itself, so I wouldn’t totally rule it out here.
