GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements is not one of the finalists for the head coaching job with the Chicago Bears. Clements was one of 13 candidates that Bears general manager Phil Emery brought in for an interview. However, when that list was narrowed down to three this week, Clements was not among them. "They're asking two guys back for second interviews and I'm not in that select group," Clements said. "I was grateful for the opportunity. Anytime you have a chance to interview for a head job, it's flattering. It was a good experience." Originally, the Bears were reportedly only going to have second interviews with Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Marc Trestman, who is the head coach of the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League. Later, Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians -- who was the interim head coach for the Colts this season -- was invited in for a second interview with the Bears. Chicago fired Lovie Smith after nine seasons when the Bears failed to make the playoffs. With Clements likely staying in Green Bay now, the Packers won't have to worry about replacing their offensive coordinator for the second consecutive year. After last season, offensive coordinator Joe Philbin was hired as the new head coach of the Miami Dolphins. That led to Clements being promoted into that position after six seasons as the quarterbacks coach. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter
