Ryan Day's agent weighs in on report regarding potential gig with Chicago Bears
Like college football, the regular season is about to come to an end for the NFL and when it does, the coaching carousel will begin.
One name that is already being thrown out there for a head coaching position is Ohio State head coach Ryan Day.
The rumor that Day might be interested in the Chicago Bears job had to be cleared up by Day’s agent Trace Armstrong, who says the rumors aren’t true. CBS Sports initially linked Day as a candidate for the job in the Windy City.
He said this to the Columbus Dispatch:
“I have the utmost respect for the Chicago Bears organization, the McCaskey family and Ted Phillips,” Armstrong said in a tweet Sunday. “However, any assertion that I have engaged in conversations with them about joining the club in any capacity is simply not true.”
Day is probably being looked at by Chicago because he coached current Bears QB Justin Fields at Ohio State. Plus, he does have some NFL experience as a position coach.
While rumors will likely start back up once the season concludes, it sounds like Day is pretty happy in Columbus.
