Former Bucs assistant Greg Olson talking to Bears



Could former Bucs offensive coordinator Greg Olson be closing in on a new job?

If things go well, he could be the Bears’ new quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator as he is one of several candidates for the job, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Olson was fired when coach Raheem Morris and his staff were relieved of their duties last week after the Bucs finished 4-12. Olson worked for the Bears under former coach Dick Jauron in a similar capacity. This time, he’d be working under new offensive coordinator Mike Tice and head coach Lovie Smith.

Olson has competition for the job. The Tribune reports former Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, former Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and University of Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch are being considered, too.
