Who will the chicago bears hire as their new coach and general manager? Here's what you need to know about searches, including recent interviews.

The Chicago Bears are looking for a new general manager and head coach.

While the move to fire coach Matt Nagy was expected as losses piled up in his fourth season, the fate of GM Ryan Pace after seven years in his role has seemed less clear over the past month.

Eventually, after a 6–11 season, Bears chairman George McCaskey also broke ties with Pace, whose teams posted a 48–65 record, made the playoffs twice, and failed to secure a playoff win.

So who will the Bears hire? We have possible head coach and general manager candidates to keep an eye on, as well as recent moves and interview requests from across the NFL.

Here’s what you need to know about finding a new Bears coach and general manager.

A spectacular playoff win followed by an interview with the Bears. For Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daball, that’s the definition of “strike while the iron is hot.”

If the Bears were going to do an in-depth study of their simultaneous search for a new head coach and general manager, perhaps their Saturday night homework should have ended with a peek into the interview rooms at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York.

It doesn’t take a sophisticated football appraiser to realize that what the Billys did on Saturday night was extraordinary and rare. They had the ball eight times and made a stunning formation: touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, touchdown, “victory formation.”

“The registry needs work.” How does being a Bears coach fit in with other jobs in the NFL? See how attractive each team is.

How attractive is the work of the Bears coach? Quarterback Justin Fields is considered a young player with a lot of potential. The owner has supported his football business by recently investing a lot of money in refurbishing Halas Hall. Bears are considered an attractive home and have several young talents in their roster.

The Tribune polled 19 veteran league leaders, coaches and agents with knowledge of team rosters and principles, asking them to rate seven positions that involve the Raiders.

How will the Bears look for a new general manager and coach? And what do we know about the search committee?

While George McCaskey said he would ultimately make a decision on the next CEO and coach, the Bears put together a five-member search committee — McCaskey, Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian, Phillips, VP of Player Engagement Lamar “Soup” Campbell and Senior Vice President of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Tanesha Wade.

Why the NFL’s “socialist enterprise” means the Bears win in the pot even when they lose on the field

When the Bears lowered the lid on another disappointing season, it was easy to see them as a messy NFL franchise. But if you look at things from the other side, the “bears” are all right.

Every home game has been sold out or close to it. TV ratings remained high. And when Forbes released its annual list of team valuations, the Bears jumped 16% year-over-year to $4.1 billion. Only six NFL teams are worth more.

And that’s not counting the new stadium the Bears seem ready to build in Arlington Heights.

George McCaskey promises a “thorough, diligent and exhaustive” search for the next Bears CEO and coach after Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy are fired.

During a one-hour videoconference, George McCaskey said he consulted with “a number of people” in NFL circles before making his decision and finalizing his conclusion Sunday night. He said Bears owner Virginia McCaskey, 99, also consulted on the team’s board of directors.

“Everyone wants to win for her,” McCaskey said. “And we are doing our best to make it happen. At some point in our conversation, I asked her how she assesses our season, and she said in a way that only a mother can: “I am very, very disappointed.”

George McCaskey’s inability to remember when the Bears teamed up with Bill Polian is quite peculiar. But Polyan’s influence on the search for a future coach and GM is paramount right now.

The opening came from Bears chairman George McCaskey.

Bill Polian was assigned to the driver’s seat for the upcoming coach and general manager searches. And, damn it, the most important leaders in Halas Hall were pumped.

However, McCaskey also appears to have suffered from selective amnesia. He couldn’t remember exactly when Polyan joined the team. “At some point during the season,” McCaskey said. I can’t remember when.

‘It’s a results-driven league’: Bears players react to firing of coach Matt Nagy and GM Ryan Pace

Running back David Montgomery admitted he was emotional. With the news that Bears coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace were fired a day after the team finished the season 6-11, Montgomery couldn’t hide his mixture of disappointment, sadness and sentimentality.

“It’s quite emotional for me,” he said.

Pace was the GM who traded Montgomery for the 73rd overall in the third round in the 2019 draft. Nagy was an energetic coach with whom Montgomery became close friends over the three seasons they worked together.

Even if the news wasn’t as overwhelming to anyone inside or outside of Halas Hall, the ending still made an impact.
