The Bears are seeking to replace Marc Trestman, who was fired along with general manager Phil Emery on Dec. 29. The Bears hired Ryan Pace to replace Emery last week.
The Bears have already interviewed Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Broncos offensive coordinator Adam Gase and Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin.
Fox had a 46-18 record with the Broncos and took his team to the playoffs in each of his four seasons, but Denver failed to win a Super Bowl during his tenure. He has a 119-89 record in 13 seasons coaching Denver and the Carolina Panthers, winning six division titles and making two Super Bowl appearances.
Chicago has missed the playoffs in each of the past four seasons and went 5-11 this season.
