Lovie's gone and next year the Bears will have some new faces on the sidelines including a possible new kick returner.
After hearing the news that his coach would not be coming back next year, Bears kick return specialist Devin Hester seemed to take it pretty hard. In fact, he even said retirement could even be an option.
"I'm going to go home and get away from football right now," Hester said. "I don't even know if I want to play again, man. You know, that's been on my mind for two years now."
Then on twitter he went on to say:
"Let me make myself clear. The reason why I feel like retiring has nothing to do with Lovie Smith getting fired. It's hard to play this game when you're not happy or having fun at what you love to do in life."
Hester has one year left in his contract. He's tied with Dion Sanders with 19 career total returns for touchdowns.
