A candidate to succeed Ryan Pace as the Bears’ General Manager has been identified.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the team has requested an interview with Colts director of college scouting Morocco Brown. Brown interviewed for the Falcons before they hired Terry Fontenot as their General Manager last year.

Brown has been with the Colts for the last six seasons. The team has drafted players like running back Jonathan Taylor, guard Quenton Nelson, linebacker Darius Leonard, and right tackle Braden Smith since Brown has been working in Indianapolis.

Brown was also the Bears’ assistant director of pro personnel from 2001-07 and has also worked for Cleveland and Washington since leaving Chicago.

  1. Chicago needs a super-scout in that job. His first assignment, then, should be to scout and identify head coaching candidates.

  2. Whoever takes this job better be up for a challenge. His predecessor left him with very little draft capital, a bad cap situation and major upgrades needed at at least three OL positions and three of the four starting DBs plus nickel. Montgomery and Mooney are nice skill players but the jury is out on Cole Kmet and Justin Fields is far from a sure thing. In fact if I had to lay money I’d bet the new GM is drafting a QB before his tenure is up.

  3. The Bears have been left in a good situation for the next GM & Coach. A high first round pick, a solid line that is offensive, and a defense that is definitively secondary. The kicking and receiving teams are special, no worries there. Plus they are interviewing very familiar faces for coaching (Frazier) and GM (Brown). Sounds like a recipe for more revenue coming in as inflation has hit the McCaskey family hard. The gas money they spend driving from Lake Forest to Soldier Field goes quickly in their limo.
