LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - General manager Phil Emery says the Chicago Bears have not discussed a contract extension with coach Lovie Smith.
Emery said Wednesday there are simply ``not enough hours in a day'' during the season and that he prefers to negotiate during the offseason.
Smith's contract doesn't expire until after the 2013 season. The Bears are in a good spot heading into their off week with a 4-1 record and a share of the NFC North lead with Minnesota.
