A pair of Colts employees will be interviewing with the Bears on Monday.

Defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus will be meeting with the team about their head coaching vacancy while assistant G.M. Ed Dodds will interview for the General Manager job in Chicago.

Eberflus has interviewed with the Jaguars since the Colts’ season came to an end with their Week 18 loss in Jacksonville. The Bears have also interviewed Doug Pederson, Brian Flores, Nathaniel Hackett, Leslie Frazier, Brian Daboll, and Jim Caldwell over the last week.

The Bears are the only team that’s requested an interview with Dodds so far in this hiring cycle. Omar Cook, Jeff Ireland, Joe Schoen, and Monti Ossenfort have also met with the team about the G.M. position.

  1. Can we get a count of how many interviews the Bears have conducted so far? Feels like a couple dozen at least. I understand wanting to do a thorough search but you’d think they’d have a narrower focus on who they want.

    And the fact that they are continuing to interview head coaching candidates before locking up a GM is baffling. The GM should be involved in (i.e. lead) the HC hiring process.

  2. It doesn’t matter who the Bears interview. Just remember the ancient Italian saying: The fish stinks from the head down.
