Bears General Manager & Head Coach Candidate Tracker

Football Grim Reaper was waiting at Halas Hall on Black Monday and he shot his scythe on general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy. Nagy’s news was expected, but Pace’s removal came as a welcome surprise, as the best thing for the Chicago Bears franchise is to bring in a new GM and head coach to work together from the start.

Once the new CEO is hired, he will report directly to President George McCaskey, and this is a new twist in the way the Bears operate. In the past, the CEO reported to team President and CEO Ted Phillips.

McCaskey has assembled a team of people who will assist with the hiring of the GM and new head coach, and which includes himself, Phillips, consultant Bill Polian, Bears LaMar vice president of player engagement. “Soup” Campbell and Bears. Senior Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Tanesha Wade. Presumably the GM will be hired first and he will have a say in the head coach, but with that frankness who knows.

We’ll update this story feed with everything we do in regards to GM / Head Coach search, and it will also serve as a GM / Head Coach news and rumor tracker.
