Now I may not know everything there is to know about the man, but being passed on by 6 teams has to show that there were some serious deficiencies in his percieved ability to take on the full duties of a HC, much like Russ Grimm here in PIT. And not being re-signed by the Bears puts a dent in his DC resume and if Lovie is able to maintian the success that D has had without him, that will only discredit him more.
He didn't even get to interview for most of the jobs since the Bears were still playing up until the Superbowl. For all we know, one of those teams may have hired him.
