    But no longer involved on the football side it sounds like. Also sounds like Polian made the call on Pace and will be the decision maker on the hires.

    Correct. This presser is giving the vibes that Bill is making the calls on the football side of shit and Ted has been pushed aside.

    He’s apparently still going to be involved in interviews, so I don’t know if he’ll be fully separated. He’s essentially unfireable in the eyes of ownership, so I don’t know if a role change will actually do anything either.

    Hiring a coach before the GM is a trend in the NFL. I don't believe it matters if the HC is someone like a Sean Payton gets hired before a GM

    Asked about bringing in a younger group to evaluate the GM/Coach jobs since George is old and Bill is old.

    "Hallas was 80 years old when he made a very good hire for the next HC for the Chicago Bears, Bill is much younger"

    Checks Notes... Bill is 79

    Rooney rule but god damn I hope he’s not the guy. If we go that route we get Bowles.

    Watching this presser... Really confirms why our franchise has been a fucking joke for years.

    When the Bears move to Arlington. A new ownership group should try and get a 2nd franchise in Chicago and lease Soldier Field lol...

    Throwing a future HOF player under the bus and calling him a lair to end the presser. Just when you think they can't be any worse.

    Flores was fired because he was not capable of putting together a coaching staff on offense. Is he just supposed to snap his fingers and bring in Joe Brady (who will be in high demand)

    I don't think Jim is a guy that works in the NFL. I feel like he caught lighting in a bottle with that SF team and it quickly spiraled out of control. Watching him run a out of date offense his entire time at Michigan and having little success doesn't get me all hyped to have him return. Vic is a top 5 DC and I would be happy with him.

    We could do a whole hell of a lot worse than Bill. Its better than allowing George and Ted making the call alone again. Its a upgrade over Accorsi a few years ago. Its not my ultimate wish but given what this franchise is... we could be in a much worse spot

    he won 13, 11, 12, 8 games at San Fran. He made it to 3 NFC championship games. At Michigan he won 10, 10, 8, 10, 9, covid year, 12. This Michigan team won 5 games the year before he took over.

    Did I say that? Pretty sure I didn't. His link to NFL jobs (Raiders, Dolphins) was who they used for leverage

    He didn’t need to use anyone for leverage, Michigan is one of the richest schools in the country with one of the wealthiest donor bases. Harbaugh was always gonna get paid no matter where he coaches in 2022.

    He took a notable pay cut going into this year, don’t think they were looking to jump him back up unless someone came sniffing.

    A year ago he took a massive pay cut from 8m to 4m and signed a extension loaded with incentives. After over performing expectations everyone with half a brain understands his agent taking advantage of this season by floating his name out for NFL jobs so he can recoup that money lost. Michigan isn't giving him a new contact 12 months after signing an extension because they are kind.
