Timeline for Lovie's next gig 

January, 16, 2013
After being fired by the Chicago Bears, Lovie Smith interviewed with the Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles. As of this afternoon's hiring of Chip Kelly by the Eagles, all of those positions have been filled, and he's not a candidate for the remaining coaching vacancies with the Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars. Per Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times, Smith is expected to take the 2013 season off.

"Smith is expected to sit out the 2013 NFL season and reconsider his options next offseason, according to a league source," Jensen wrote.
