I've been saying since the beginning that I thought Indianapolis Colts secondary coach Alan Williams would be a good fit for the Bears coordinator job.
I feel even stronger about that after talking to him this morning at Super Bowl Media Day.
He isn't anxious to leave, but he's confident that he's ready to become a coordinator.
"It'll come. It'll come. All coordinator jobs are intriguing," he said when I asked him about the Bears job. "if they call and if that happens, when that time comes, it'll be neat to explore the opportunity. But if not, I have a great group to work with."
Williams said he learned about patience from former Colts head coach Tony Dungy, who hired him in Tampa.
"My time will come. I'm not going to get impatient about it," Williams said. "The best thing I can do is keep putting a good product on the field and we keep winning football games, and the right job will come around when it comes around."
As I've mentioned before, Williams should be someone the Bears explore because of his track record of developing young players into starters. The best example is safety Antoine Bethea, a former sixth-round pick who became a Pro Bowl player.
