The Chicago Bears’ long search for a head coach has come to an end today and John Fox is their man. He’ll be formally introduced at a press conference on Monday. While many in the Second City are excited about the hiring of a coach with a proven track record, Denver Post Broncos reporter Mike Klis is not too happy with the timing of how it’s all going down.
Happy for John Fox. Great hire by Bears. But seriously, Bears introducing him on Martin Luther King Day? Bad, bad form.

Uh. You lost us on this one, Mike. Especially considering the NFL plays games on Thanksgiving and Christmas. And New Year’s Day and Halloween and Veterans Day and Columbus Day.
Of course, Chicago journalists who share Klis’s concern could band together and create another Jay Cutler-talking-to-an-empty-room situation. As a purveyor of awkward sports content, that would be great for business.
