The Bears are currently interviewing candidates for both head coach and General Manager as they look for new leadership in their football operation.

That search will continue on Tuesday, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports the Bears will meet with Patriots scouting consultant Eliot Wolf.

Wolf has been with the Patriots since March 2020, following his two-year stint as Browns assistant G.M. Wolf spent most of his career with the Packers, working his way up from pro personnel assistant to director of football operations.

He is the son of Hall of Famer Ron Wolf, who served as Packers G.M. from 1991-2000. The younger Wolf was a candidate to succeed Ted Thompson as Green Bay’s General Manager, but the job went to Brian Gutekunst.

The Bears are casting a wide net in their searches for a new coach and G.M. after firing Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace on Jan. 10.

  1. How much data is required for other teams to finally understand Belichick is the all powerful Oz and that hiring Patriots assistants is not a good move. SMH.

  2. Good lord, just have an open house at Halas Hall this week and pick someone. This is embarrassing.

    Either you know who you want or not by now. Seriously? Who’s left? Adam Gase?

  3. As a Lions fan my sincere hope is the Bears DO NOT hire him! That would be a great hire, so it mustn’t happen! Ted Phillips has an aversion to making good hires, so it probably wont happen anyway though.

    Wolf has barely been in the Pats system so not enough time to put him under the Belichick umbrella of failure.

  4. As much as everyone just knows they’ll screw up this hire, you’ve got to give them credit for due diligence……
