Biggs: Bears interview QB coach candidate

The Chicago Bears took a step toward finalizing their offensive coaching staff today when they interviewed Shane Day for the vacant quarterbacks coach job under offensive coordinator Mike Martz.

Day is believed to be Martz’s first choice for the job even though he’s never held the position before. He worked the last three years as a quality control assistant for the San Francisco 49ers. He was under Martz in 2007 and 2008.

Previously., Day was an assistant coach at the University of Michigan where new Bears tight ends coach Mike DeBord was the offensive coordinator.

Martz is going to be the one coaching quarterback Jay Cutler. Day would likely serve in an assistant’s role to him, but the primary coaching of Cutler and the team’s other quarterbacks would be done by the newly hired offensive coordinator.

Lovie Smith still has to choose a defensive coordinator, then the staff will be in place for 2010.
