Shane Day then left San Francisco to join the Chicago Bears (2010-2011) as their new quarterbacks coach. He was highly recommended by offensive coordinator  Mike Martz,  Day had worked with Martz for two seasons while he was in San Francisco. Day helped the Bears reach the NFC Championship game in 2010.

Day was then hired in 2012 by the University of Connecticut (2012-2013) to replace Joe Moorehead as the Huskies Quarterbacks coach. Day called plays for the Husky offense the final 3 games of 2013. The Huskies Offense took off those three games and set several school records, also while leading the Huskies to 3 consecutive wins against Temple, Rutgers, and Memphis.
