Bears Insider Jim Miller reported on CSN Chicago that Kelly is a candidate to replace Smith as the head coach of the Chicago Bears. I do believe the Bears job will be the top job out there, and it's never been a secret that Kelly's ultimate goal is to coach in the NFL. Will the Bears job be too good for Kelly to pass up, or are the Bears willing to wait until after the NC game to hire a coach? I can't imagine Kelly bails out on the NC game, but he has bolted before a BCS game before, and his Cincy squad was unbeaten. This could get interesting if Kelly becomes visibly in the mix.
