The Bears announced they have completed their interview with 49ers director of player personnel Ran Carthon.

Carthon, whose father is a former NFL player who won two Super Bowl rings, became the ninth candidate to interview for the team’s vacant General Manager position. The team has interviewed six coaching candidates.

The Bears fired General Manager Ryan Pace and coach Matt Nagy after the season.

Carthon, 40, is in his first season in his current role after serving four seasons as the club’s director of pro personnel. Carthon manages the pro scouting department.

Carthon joined the 49ers in 2017 after spending five seasons as the director of pro personnel for the Rams. Before that, he was a pro scout for the Falcons from 2008-11.

Glenn Cook, Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, Champ Kelly, Jeff Ireland, Monti Ossenfort, Joe Schoen, Ed Dodds and Eliot Wolf are the other candidates the Bears have interviewed for the G.M. job.

  1. I get it! The Bears are going to wait until everyone else is already hired and then wring their hands and say the only option left is Colts leftovers! How typical of the inept McKaskey’s!

  2. Given this season that the Bears did not have a top 3 pick for GM to help them with the coach pick is just amazing. This will be another “Boy what that an amazing pick” by the McCaskey clan. Bear fans should plan for another 6 & 11 or 7 & 10 year with no play-offs in 22/23.
