I’m back folks and, as expected, plenty happened while I was gone. My absence could not be helped — a significant family event that was planned months ago.
Now I turn my attention to tracking down who is being courted by the Bears to replace Jeff Tedford. I expect Sandy Barbour to aim high — there is a lot at stake.
Meanwhile, it appears Tedford may already have suitors lining up. Colorado fired Jon Embree on Sunday night after he posted a 4-21 in two seasons, and Tedford’s name was mentioned in the Denver Post as a possible replacement.
From the Post: “A search for a successor will start immediately. (Athletic director Mike) Bohn has mentioned an admiration for Jeff Tedford, considered at one time a quarterbacks guru who was fired at California after an 11-year stint.”
