The 2013 Lovie Smith: Taking A Time Out

As reported this week, former Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith plans to sit out the 2013 season after failing to land a head-coaching position with either San Diego, Buffalo or Philadelphia. Or Arizona or Buffalo. Or Kansas City or Jacksonville. Or Cleveland. But he’s not a wallow-on-the-couch type of guy. If we know Lovie, he’ll keep busy, even if he’s getting paid $5 million by the Bears to stay away.

Which gig would best fit Lovie’s sabbatical?
