Bears interview Ruskell for GM opening
Thursday, January 19, 2012
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Chicago Bears director of player personnel Tim Ruskell has interviewed for the team's general manager job.
The interview took place on Thursday.
The Bears are looking to replace Jerry Angelo, who was fired after the Bears finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs for the fourth time in five years. Ruskell served as the Seattle Seahawks' general manager from 2005 to 2009 before being hired by Chicago in April 2010.
The Bears also interviewed New England Patriots director of pro personnel Jason Licht, San Diego Chargers player personnel director Jimmy Raye and New York Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross this week. Chicago is also scheduled to interview Kansas City Chiefs college scouting director Phil Emery on Friday.
