The Bears are seeking a replacement for Ryan Pace, who they fired as General Manager on Monday. They have requested interviews with at least three executives around the league.

Kimberley Martin of ESPN reports that the Bears put in a request with the Browns to interview vice president of football operations Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and vice president of player personnel Glenn Cook.

Colts director of college scouting Morocco Brown also is on the Bears’ list of candidates.

Adofo-Mensah joined General Manager Andrew Berry in Cleveland in March 2020. Adofo-Mensah previously spent seven seasons with the 49ers, including two years as director of football research and development.

He is a former basketball player at Princeton, who earned his undergraduate degree there in 2003 before getting a master’s in economics from Stanford in 2013.

Cook joined the Browns’ front office in 2016 from the Packers, where he served as a pro scout from 2012-15.

  1. Sure, hire some Browns people with that incredible winning pedigree. Looks like the McCaskeys looking for the cheap option over the right option, as usual.

  2. Haven’t they learned their lesson. Get your GM first, and then let him pick the coach. That way they don’t have the built in excuse, “well you picked the coach that failed, now it’s my turn to pick my guy.”

    Also you will lose a ton of candidates, if you force the bust Fields onto them as “the guy”. When in reality he’s had 1-2 good quarters and the rest trash.

  3. As a 50 plus year Bear fan, I have been disappointed many times. However, after Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace were dismissed, I thought the Bears would be on their way to getting a young dynamic duo to take the reins. HOWEVER, after watching yesterdays press conference with George ( lucky parent club) McCaskey, I am afraid we are in for another 5 years of mediocrity. He hired Bill Polian to help hire the next GM and head coach. I think Bill has a fabulous resume, but he is probably not in tune with todays young prospects. The rest of the crew he assembled will not get the job done. The only one with actual football experience is Soup Campbell. Yes he checked all the boxes and put a VP of diversity on the search crew, but what are her qualifications for identifying GM and coach qualities.
    If you did not know anything about George McCaskey before yesterday, after watching his press conference, you now know he will not get this right.

  4. Why not interview Dave Wannstedt, knows the organization, how to coach, and a great general knowledge of Football all around.

  5. No disrespect intended to the Browns because they have become a good team in recent years but I’m not sure I’d be looking for a GM there.
