Former Denver Broncos coach John Fox interviewed for the Chicago Bears' job.
Fox met with the Bears on Wednesday, two days after he and the Broncos agreed to part ways.
He is at least the sixth candidate to interview for the job. He is widely seen as a strong possibility given his record and his ties to consultant Ernie Accorsi and new general manager Ryan Pace.
Fox was the defensive coordinator for the New York Giants from 1997 to 2001 when Accorsi was the GM. Saints coach Sean Payton was the offensive coordinator for part of that time, and he is tight with Pace, who was hired out of New Orleans' front office.
