Luke Getsy, the former offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, continues to attract interest from NFL teams for coaching opportunities. According to Ian Rapoport, Getsy recently interviewed with the New England Patriots for their vacant offensive coordinator position and had a second interview scheduled with the New Orleans Saints on Wednesday.

Getsy's tenure with the Bears during the 2023 season garnered mixed reactions in Chicago. Despite high expectations, the Bears' offense struggled, particularly in the passing game, finishing among the bottom five in the NFL. Critics pointed to questionable playcalling, such as a notorious sequence in Week 2 against the Buccaneers when Getsy called three consecutive screen passes, leading to a pick-six. The Bears also faced challenges in short-yardage situations, often resorting to unconventional plays.
However, Getsy did have some successes in 2023. He successfully featured DJ Moore as the primary target in the passing attack and helped develop quarterback Justin Fields as the season progressed. The running game remained effective for a second consecutive year.
It's worth noting that some teams, like the Patriots, may be interviewing Getsy to gather information about Justin Fields, as there have been rumors connecting New England to a potential trade for Fields if the Bears decide to draft a new quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick. In the NFL, teams often use the offseason to gather as much information as possible before making significant decisions, such as trading for a quarterback.
Luke Getsy's coaching career in the NFL began with the Green Bay Packers in 2014, where he served as an offensive quality control coach. He has accumulated nine seasons of coaching experience in the league, including the past two years as the offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears.
