Former Bears OC Luke Getsy ‘well-respected’ around the NFL

The Chicago Bears fired offensive coordinator Luke Getsy following another disappointing outing on offense in 2023. But, to the surprise of Bears faithful, Getsy has drawn interest for multiple offensive coordinator jobs.

Getsy has interviewed with at least three teams for their vacant offensive coordinator jobs — the Las Vegas Raiders, the New England Patriots and the New Orleans Saints.

“He’s very well-respected,” NFL insider Albert Breer told ESPN 1000’s Kap & JHood. “I think there are people out there that think he did a pretty good job in the last couple of years, all things considered. Bringing Justin along, building an offense for Justin, weathering the injuries, having a rookie quarterback ready to go in Tyson Bagent.

“I would say there are enough people that feel like, you know, that the potential that he had two years ago when he was hired and became an offensive coordinator, that the potential is still there.”

While Getsy has been rightfully criticized in Chicago, the Bears offense did have a top-two run game in two seasons under Getsy. But Getsy showed an inability to make adjustments, adapt his scheme to fit his players and, most importantly, failed to develop Justin Fields, which is why he was let go from the Bears.

Chicago has already moved on with former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, who’s been known for building an offense around different quarterbacks. And that’s the biggest question mark for the Bears right now — will they stick with Fields or draft Caleb Williams.
