Former Bears Starting DB Could Be Underdog Candidate for Next DC

Chris Harris played for the Chicago Bears twice and is currently considered an underdog candidate to become the team's next defensive coordinator.

Sean Hammond of Shaw Local Media listed Harris on his list of potential defensive coordinator possibilities, and the Bears have previously expressed interest in Harris as a coach.

ESPN insider Jeremy Fowler revealed in January 2023 that the Bears have asked permission to interview Harris for an unknown defensive position on their staff. 

Nothing came of it, and Harris ended up in Tennessee with the Titans, where he worked as defensive pass game coordinator and cornerback coach for the 2023 season.

The Bears are presently looking for a new defensive coordinator, and Harris could be a name to watch, especially given what head coach Matt Eberflus wants in his next DC.

 Harris, a sixth-round pick from the University of Louisiana at Monroe, started 20 games for the Bears in 2005 and 2006.

He had a famous interception off quarterback Peyton Manning in the Bears' loss to the Colts in Super Bowl 41, but he was moved to the Carolina Panthers the next season.

After three years with the Panthers, Harris returned to Chicago as a player in 2010, starting all 16 games and earning second-team All-Pro honors. He retired from the game following the 2012 season.
