Vikings Denied an Interview by Bears

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune has reported that the Chicago Bears have denied the Vikings permission to interview their defensive backs coach Jon Hoke for their defensive coordinator position.

Hoke has one year remaining on his contract in Chicago and this is the 2nd straight year that Chicago has denied a team permission to interview an assistant. Mike Tice was the victim last year when Bears denied the Titans attempt to interview Tice for their offensive coordinator position.

One thing that’s for certain is Leslie Frazier seems to be continuing his search for a defensive coordinator with someone with ties to a cover-2 scheme.

    First thanks for the laugh CalVkg ~ LOL That was good ~

    What is it with Frazier and interviewing DB coaches ~ ? One would think there was a good college DC who would take the chance to move up and show what he could do ~ Or is it there are no cover2 D in college ~ ? I really dont know the answer to that as I dont keep up with college ball like I did in my younger days ~

      I think there’s two main things Frazier is looking for and that’s someone familiar with the cover 2 and someone with experience with secondary coverage. Many people through the organization wasn’t happy with Pagac in that department. They felt he didn’t know enough about the back end and it especially showed in the 3rd and 4th quarters when opposing offenses made adjustments and Pagac couldn’t figure out how to respond to them in the secondary. Many players questioned his calls and didn’t want to run what he called because they didn’t feel like Pagac was putting them in the correct coverages at the correct time.
