Mike Martz resigns as Bears OC


Recommended Posts


The Jets would have to compensate the Bears because he quit.

Haha and all these years I wondered why pats have to give comp to jets when belly quit as HC of NYJ. Don't hold your breath for a response or mea culpa sperm. :)

Only if they keep paying him. So probably not.

I don't think that's the case. For example, Schottenheimer couldn't just resign from the Jets and then take the OC position with another team. We'd either need to ok it or be entitled to compensation since he was under contract and he breached the contract.

Similar also happened with Heimerdinger when he quit after not being promoted to HC following Herm's departure. I don't remember 100% but I think we just let it slide because we didn't want him here disgruntled anyway (plus we let Mangini pick his own OC instead of being saddled with an incumbent).

But a coach can't just quit on his contract and go take the same position somewhere else.
