Bears are allowing other teams to interview Toub
Not sure I like this. He is a great coach, but also don't want to hold him back.

But it doesnít take much reading of the tea leaves to think heís not the leading candidating, since the Bears are letting him look at lateral moves.
Toub interviewed for the Dolphins head coaching job last year, and heís one of four special teams coaches on the Bears list.
But according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears have given permission to the Panthers and Chiefs to talk to Toub about assistant coaching jobs, despite Toubís contract running through 2013.
The Charlotte Observer reported Toub interviewed with Panthers head coach Ron Rivera Wednesday.
One of the top special teams coaches in the business, Toub would be an upgrade for either the Panthers or Chiefs. He has long-standing relationships with both Rivera and Chiefs coach Andy Reid, working with Reid at both the college and pro level.
