Bears Bumbling GM Search

A week after firing long-time General Manger Jerry Angelo, the Chicago Bears search for a replacement remains quiet. While other clubs move swiftly (see Oakland) to fill their top football positions, the Bears have no formal interviews scheduled.

Bears may stay in house, hire Tim Ruskell as G.M.

When the Bears announced that they had fired General Manager Jerry Angelo, they said director of player personnel Tim Ruskell would oversee the front office until a replacement for Angelo could be found.
