General manager’s list for the Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears need to find both of those types of coaches somehow in the future if they want to get on the right path. The best leaders will create the best followers. If Louis Riddick is that person at the top that needs to be in charge, then so be it. Other names to keep an eye out for are:

  • Mike Borgonzi, Kansas City Chiefs Director of Football Operations
  • Nick Caserio, New England Patriots Director of Player Personnel
  • Glenn Cook, Cleveland Browns, Vice President of Player Personnel
  • Ian Cunningham, Philadelphia Eagles, Assitant Director of Player Personnel
  • Lake Dawson, Buffalo Bills, Assitant Director of College Scouting
  • Ed Dodds, Indianapolis Colts, Assitant General Manager
  • John Dorsey, Cleveland Browns, Former General Manager
  • Scott Fitterer, Seattle Seahawks, Vice President of Football Operations
  • Terry Fontenot, New Orleans Saints, Assitant General Manager
  • Reggie Mckenzie, Las Vegas Raiders, Former General Manager
  • Monti Ossenfort, Tenneessee Titans, Director of Player Personnel
  • George Paton, Minnesota Vikings, Assistant General Manager
  • Adam Peters, San Francisco 49ers, Vice President of Player Personnel
  • Joe Schoen, Buffalo Bills, Assitant General Manager
  • Rick Smith, Houston Texans, Former General Manager
  • Andy Weidl, Philadelphia Eagles, Vice President of Player Personnel
  • JoJo Wooden, Las Angeles Chargers, Director of Player Personnel
  • Brain Xanders, Los Angeles Rams, Senior Personnel Executive
  • Champ Kelly, Chicago Bears, Director of Pro Personnel

That is not even half of the list I could come up with. I added Champ Kelly because sometimes the teams have the people they need in-house but don’t even know it yet. The Chicago Bears need to make sure they get the next hire correct if it comes down to moving on from Ryan Pace.

Next. Bear fans, let's talk about the future. dark

Hiring a coach would be the next step, but that is for another article another day. If the Chicago Bears are indeed moving on from this regime, the time to research started yesterday. The process will be a long one (hopefully).
