LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Phil Emery is being introduced as the new general manager of the Chicago Bears at a Halas Hall news conference.
Emery’s most recent job was director of college scouting for the Kansas City Chiefs. He replaces Jerry Angelo, who was fired after an 8-8 season in which the Bears missed the playoffs for the fourth time in the last five years.
Emery served as an area scout with the Bears from 1998-2004 and worked with Chicago coach Lovie Smith for one season. He was one of five interviewed for the position.
