The Chicago Bears close to completing their second week of interviews as they look for a new general manager and head coach of their soccer team. The pace of the Bears interview process has been criticized as the team didn’t finish with their reported first round of interviews but some clues have surfaced this week that appear to be looking beyond what they’re looking for. they are leading.
The first clue is report that the Bears will do a second interview with Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus next week. Eberflus’ initial interview with the Bears took place on January 17. Eberflus, who also has a second interview scheduled with the Jacksonville Jaguars, is considered one of the top head coaching contenders in the cycle. period this year. Eberflus was not initially considered a strong candidate for the Bears head coach position in terms of his defensive background but the second interview seems to suggest that there are legitimate interests between the two sides.
The second clue is assistant superintendent Ed Dodds of the Indianapolis Colts remove His name is considered for the position of general manager of the Bears. Dodds was interviewed by the Bears for the vacancy on Monday. The Dodds’ removal of his name from consideration created an uproar among Bears fans as skepticism about the team’s search process grew.
Dodds’ withdrawal from the Bears’ joint management company may have nothing to do with his lack of interest in the job. Instead, it may suggest that the Bears are closer to hiring their next general manager than can be seen. It’s possible that Dodds knew that the Bears were targeting a general manager candidate and that’s why he withdrew his name from consideration. The question becomes, how did the Dodds know that?
Clues have surfaced this week that may indicate the Chicago Bears are eyeing the Indianapolis Colts combination for their head coach and general manager positions.
The answer to the question of how the Dodds knew that the Bears were targeting a general manager candidate is because there is another candidate on the Bears’ roster who is currently in the Colts organization. The Colts Morocco Brown University Admissions Manager is also a candidate for the Bears general manager position.
Brown’s candidacy for general manager of the Bears has been interesting to watch. Brown was originally scheduled to interview for the position on Tuesday, then the interview was scheduled for today, and earlier this morning, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the interview date had been pushed back by a bit. Again.
Brown’s interview for the general manager position of Bears seems to add some logic to the idea of interviewing Eberflus for a second time next week.
For a team that intended to hire a general manager before hiring their head coach, the idea that Eberflus had a second interview with the team even though no general manager was hired was strange. . However, with Eberflus and Brown already working alongside the Colts, the Bears may know some that the two will accept each other. One thing is clear that next week is an important week for the Chicago Bears in their search for a new head coach and general manager.
