The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Jerry Angelo is out as Bears general manager.
The Chicago Tribune has reported that Bears general manager Jerry Angelo will not be back next season with the team. It has not been determined whether he has been released or will be retiring.
Before those Bears fans who have been calling for this for quite some time can get excited, two things need to happen:
First, the organization needs to confirm the rumor, but I’m fairly confident the Tribune would not report such news if it weren’t true.
Second, we have to make sure that Tim Ruskell, the director of player personnel, whom Angelo hired as his heir apparent, does not get the job. Ruskell could be worse than Angelo, and that would be an ultimate case of, “be careful what you wish for.”
