Dave Toub

Team/position: Chicago special teams coordinator

Age: 50

Previous NFL head coaching interviews: Toub interviewed last season with Miami. The Bears signed him to a two-year contract extension shortly thereafter.

Why is Toub radar-worthy?: After the success John Harbaugh has experienced in Baltimore, it would make sense for teams to give assistants with extensive special teams backgrounds the same consideration as candidates on offense and defense. Instead, sharp football minds such as Toub and San Francisco’s Brad Seely, who did speak with Indianapolis last January just before Chuck Pagano’s hiring, too frequently slip through the cracks. Toub’s units are consistently among the NFL’s best and most creative.

Potential fit: Chicago, provided Bears general manager Phil Emery fires Lovie Smith and is willing to entertain an in-house candidate.

Trivia note: Five different Bears players (Corey Graham, Devin Hester, Johnny Knox, Brendon Ayanbadejo and Robbie Gould) reached the Pro Bowl under Toub’s watch between 2004 and 2011. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh)
