My guess is that the Bears hire Jim Fassel. Why? $$$.
The Bears owe Jauron $2.4 million for 2004. Now, if Dick gets another job in the NFL next year, the hiring team only has to pay the net difference between the new contract and Dick's old contract. That means, if Dick gets an assistant job for say, $300,000, the Bears only have to pay Dick $2.1 million.
Well, Fassel is owed $2.7 million by the Giants. The Bears could sign Fassel to a deal with a salary for 2004 under $2.7 million and have the Giants absorb some of the cost. With the Bears tied to Jauron for another year, this is the move a franchise on the cheap makes.
