No, not Greg Olsen, but as Pete pointed out in today's Den, the Bears are set to interview the Greg Olson that coached in Chicago under Dick Jauron and most recently was the offensive coordinator in Tampa Bay. His time spent as a coach goes back to 1986, and among the names being bandied about he has the most NFL coaching experience.

Hit the jump for a little more.

It's not known where Olson stacks up among a list of potential candidates that includes former Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, former Seahawks offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates and University of Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

Koetter has a few higher stature offers out there, but he's close with Mike Tice, and both Bates and Fisch have a history with Jay Cutler.

What do you think Bears fans?
