Martz's exit was 'Lovie's call'
LAKE FOREST – The Bears will search for their third offensive coordinator in the past four seasons after saying goodbye to Mike Martz on Tuesday.
Martz, whose two-year contract expired after this season, learned of his fate during an afternoon meeting with head coach Lovie Smith at Halas Hall. Smith also decided not to bring back quarterbacks coach Shane Day, who was one of Martz’s recruits.
Bears president Ted Phillips said Smith would be responsible for hiring Martz’s replacement. Martz’s exit had been rumored for weeks and was overshadowed by the Bears’ surprise decision to fire longtime general manager Jerry Angelo.
