|Lovie Acts Like He's Sticking Around with Bears
|LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- A day after their disappointing season ended, Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith met with his team and huddled with management.
One thing he apparently didn't do: Act like a guy on his way out.
Linebacker Hunter Hillenmeyer says Smith talked about goals for next season and what players need to do in the offseason.
Hillenmeyer was under the impression his coach will be back. To him, that's a good thing. Hillenmeyer says Smith ``should be here.''
The 7-9 Bears are expected to make changes after missing the playoffs for the third straight year, but exactly how drastic those changes will be remains to be seen.
Smith, general manager Jerry Angelo and president Ted Phillips didn't make themselves available for comment Monday.
