The Bears announced Tuesday that Jeff King and Trey Koziol have been appointed as co-directors of player personnel. Those weren’t the only changes the team has made to its front office under new General Manager Ryan Poles.

Mark Sadowski was dismissed as the Bears’ college scouting director, a position he had held since 2016, according to multiple reports. Sadowski joined the Bears in 2005 as an area scout.

Sadowski worked under General Managers Jerry Angelo, Phil Emery, Ryan Pace and Poles in his tenure with the team.

The Bears also have moved on from national scout Chris Prescott and scouting coordinator Bobby Macedo, per multiple reports. Prescott drew criticism for comments he had about second-round choice Jaquan Brisker on Friday.

  1. Mark Sadowski sounds like one of the 80’s Bears Super Fans.

    Daaaaaaaaaaaaa Bearsssssssssss!

  2. Maybe there’s really no “good” time of the year to reboot scouting staffs but these firings that happen right after the draft always feel really weird. If Poles knew they stink, why didn’t he he clean house as soon as he was hired and not risk this year’s draft? On the other hand, if the ’22 Bears draft class crushes it, maybe the scouts knew what they were doing and shouldn’t have been let go in the first place?

    That all being said, the Bears’ draft success, especially in the Top 3 rounds, has been really bad for quite some time and while past Bears GMs are certainly a part of it, bringing in some new eyes is fine with me.

  3. Standard practice to fire scouts after their work is done. It’s a new regime!

  4. I don’t care what anyone says, I like Poles so far. He may be right, he may be wrong, but he’s doing it his way and not following the Bears status quo that has led to continuously mediocrity.

  5. The reality of this is after the regime change they probably had the heart to fire them after they were done for their recruiting season instead of canning them mid-season. Now begins next years draft scouting, so it makes sense.
