Christensen could be let go by the Colts once a new general manager takes over in Indianapolis. Colts owner Jim Irsay fired Bill and Chris Polian on Monday but continues to evaluate the coaching staff.
Even if Christensen remains with the Colts, it wouldn’t be a stretch for Bears coach Lovie Smith to ask permission to speak with him. Christensen and Smith have a close relationship dating to their days on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ staff. And Christensen was rumored to be a candidate for the Bears’ offensive coordinator job before the 2010 season.
In 2009, when Christensen was Indianapolis’ receivers coach, he interviewed with the49ers for their offensive coordinator position, after Martz got fired in San Francisco.
