Rumors continue to increase about the future of offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.
Not that the Giants want to lose him, but the newest offering out of CSNChicago.com lists Gilbride along with deposed Washington head coach Jim Zorn as possibilities for the Bears' offensive coordinator spot now that Jeremy Bates reportedly has decided to follow USC boss Pete Carroll to Seattle.
Gilbride, under contract until the end of 2010, would need to have an upgrade in job description, like assistant head coach, to join Lovie Smith. Then, there's still the rumor floating around that he's in the mix for the yet-to-be-opened Raiders job. Pro Football Talk reports that Al Davis is on the verge of firing Tom Cable, perhaps as early as today.
And then there is the longtime rumor that Gilbride could be interviewed for the open Bills head coaching spot, a job Gilbride told me earlier in the season he'd gladly take because of his previous good experience with owner Ralph Wilson as the Bills' offensive coordinator from 2002-03. That interview hasn't happened, however.
