CHICAGO -- The Bears have confirmed, via the team's official Web site, that Perry Fewell is at Halas Hall on Monday interviewing for the vacant defensive coordinator job. Fewell is a logical choice to join the staff, considering his strong ties to current Bears' coaches and players, and his familiarity with the defensive principles preferred by head coach Lovie Smith.
A source familiar with the situation said Fewell had not made up his mind as of the weekend, but is expected to make a decision this week.
It's unclear whether potential future head coach openings in Jacksonville, Oakland and Carolina would influence Fewell's decision, and it's also unknown if Fewell would even be a serious candidate if any of those jobs becomes available.
