Former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores is set to interview for the Bears’ head coaching vacancy and the Bears would also like to speak to a former Dolphins General Manager about that opening.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Bears have requested an interview with Saints assistant G.M. Jeff Ireland. He was the Dolphins’ General Manager from 2008 to 2013.

Ireland has been with the Saints since 2015 and has focused on college scouting during his time in New Orleans. The team has drafted players like Alvin Kamara, Ryan Ramczyk, Michael Thomas, and Marshon Lattimore since Ireland joined the team.

According to multiple reports, the Bears have also requested an interview with Colts assistant G.M. Ed Dodds. Dodds has interviewed for other openings in the past and has worked for the Colts since 2017.

  1. Pretty much all these guys the Bears are interviewing for GM put together MUCH better rosters for their teams than the Bears currently have, so that’s encouraging.

  2. They both seem like good potential G.M. candidates. They are both assistant G.M.’s, so they personally didn’t make the drafting or free agent decisions.

  3. Jeff Ireland?! He’s a re-tread who’s been fired how many times? Bears fans deserve a GM with an idea of how the game is played and won not some loser.

  4. Just remember that all these candidates are also looking for practice interviews before their own choice spot to land. While management that is doing the interviewing is picking their brains for ideas for free. The Bears will go with the cheapest available.

  5. As a Saints fan I’d really hate to see them lose Ireland. The drafts have gotten WAY better since he came aboard. Now if he were given another GM gig I don’t have a clue how that would go since he bombed so bad in Miami but the guy can really spot college talent.
