Add Chan Gailey to the list of candidates to become the Bears' offensive coordinator, meaning the team might add a third former NFL head coach to their staff. Gailey, the former Dallas Cowboys and Georgia Tech head coach, was the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs under Herm Edwards, who is close to Bears coach Lovie Smith, in 2008. He remained in that position when Todd Haley was hired to coach the Chiefs before last season but was relieved of his duties less than two weeks before the 2009 season opener.
