Part two of this "keep db75" entertained series revolves around a fictional scenario in which you, the General Manager, get to decide what to do with our Defensive Coordinator position. Yes, this is fictional. No, the numbers aren't right. I'm just curious to see what those in the forum think are/are not solutions to some of our problems.
The scenario: You can bring in any name to the Chicago Bears to be the defensive coordinator that is not currently a defensive coordinator in the NFL. They will sign a 5 year, $15 mil contract to be our defensive coordinator. However, Mel Tucker is already under contract for the same 5 year, $15mil terms. However, all of Mel's salary is guaranteed per the terms of his contract.
So what do you do - do you keep Mel, or do you fire him and sign anyone you want paying effectively 5 years/$30 mil for a defensive coordinator? Whatever you decide, provide your rationale - and if you hire a new defensive coordinator, say who and why.
