Sources: Titans deny Bears request to talk to Dowell Loggains for Passing Coordinator

Multiple sources (via twitter here, here, and here) indicate that the Bears have been denied the opportunity to talk to Dowell Loggains (picture above, left, short), QB Coach of the Titans, for the Passing Coordinator position. Of particular interest is the last "here", which is Michael C. Wright of ESPN with the following:

Sources said Titans would have granted permission to Loggains only if it was for OC job.

Is this the kind of world shattering news that will send the team spiraling into oblivion? No, but it had been noted that Cutler lobbied heavily for Loggains. Cutler and Loggains know each other from Cutler's Vanderbilt Days.

Is it truly the highway to the Danger Zone? No, but in an era of increasing Bears cronyism, and possibly as a gift for having forced Mike Martz on him, this would have been nice for Jay Cutler.

That said, the name of Jeremy Bates is likely to get bandied about again, as well as probably some others. it shouldn't be a position that's too hard to fill, but it seems like the Bears did their due diligence in trying to get someone for their franchise quarterback.
