Fox and the Denver Broncos mutually agreed to separate after the teams loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, putting Fox in the market. He instantly became one of the top coaching candidates and the Bears wasted no time showing interest in him.
Fox is 119-89 in his career with the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos including two Super Bowl appearances.
