The Chicago Bears have reportedly found a new head coach.

According to Adam Schefter, the Bears have decided to hire Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus as the team’s new coach. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Honestly, I don’t know anything about Eberflus, but this seems like a very random hire. There was some chatter about possibly going after Jim Harbaugh.

Clearly, that didn’t happen and Eberflus has been tapped to lead the show.

Hiring a defensive coach to lead the Bears honestly makes no sense at all. The franchise’s entire future rests on Justin Fields’ shoulders.

Why the hell would you hire a defensive coach when you need to develop your young first round pick quarterback? It makes less than zero sense.

The Bears should have gone after an offensive-minded guy with a proven record of developing QBs. Instead, they went after the Colts DC.

Best of luck Chicago fans. It sounds like you’re going to need it.
