The Bears will be interviewing Brian Flores for their HC position.

George may be a dim bulb whose only qualification to run the Bears is that his mommy likes the job he's doing, but even he wouldn't hire a HC before a GM, would he ?

I think meeting with prospective coaches is a good idea to gauge their interest and see if itís someone theyíll approve when the new GM makes a selection.

If they hire someone Iíll be worried.

heres my early ranking of the coaches theyve lined up to interview:
Guys I would be happy if they hire:
Flores: seems kind of like a volatile hire. could be great could flame out real fast with his personality. Unquestionably got the most of his talent
Daboll: developed Josh Allen.  Modifies his teams to his actual talent.
Pederson:  had a superbowl winning season with Wentz/Foles.  May remind too many people of Nagy
Bowles:  won a little with no talent in NY.  Top notch defensive XO guy

I dont know enough about Hackett, Eberflus or Leftwhich as coaches to come to a decision.  I remember Leftwhich being carried down the field between plays in college with a bad ankle and always liking the guy since.

Not interested in Quinn or Frazier

Consideration for Flores is dependent on Polian convincing TedGeorge is quash their Ditkaphobia and be ok with a coach with a strong will.  There aren't many coaches out there who can be an a$shole but still command respect in the locker room.

But yeah the number 1 question is why the turnover at OC and who do have in mind to maximize Field's talent.

My top 4 for GM are Rick Smith, Ed Dodds, Louis Riddick and Morocco Brown.

I think Harbough has that ahole attitude but commands respect AND gets the most out of his team.  He is high on my list.  I would love to know the real story on Flores, like Daboll.  I too remember Leftwich being carried down the field while hurt, and he won that game.  He just hasnt been a coach that long.

I agree on Harbaugh.  Him and Vic would be rainbows and unicorns right now.  But I am just assuming he's shaking down Michigan for all they have and that he is staying put unless I hear differently.

If Omar Khan doesn't succeed Kevin Colbert as Steelers GM, he would be a great candidate to eventually move over to president of football operations if George would get his "I'm a fan only" head out of his ass.  You combine him with a promoted up and comer talent evaluator, especially in the OL, like Morroco Brown, that would be sweet.  They both have a relationship with Mark Sadowski who IMO is still a valuable piece of the college scouting side that helped Pace get some of those late round values.

GM first, HC as he sees fit. Any other way would be disaster....

George "Chauncey The Gardener" making it go the other way would just be his way of "Being There" (sweaty Teddy in for the final call probably)....

 CHICAGO BEARS TO INTERVIEW ENTIRE NFL FOR GM AND HC POSITIONS.

 Hey how do you kill three birds with one stone ? Hire Nathanial Hackett from G.B.

 1. We get a H.C.

 2. We get the O.C. who keeps the pack at 13-3.

 3. We take the brains from the packers.

 Btw ... throw in Fangio at D.C.  Your thoughts ?

I think my favorite GM/coach combo early on is Elliot Wolf/Flores. 

Wolf is the son of Ron Wolf.  He worked for the Packers and is now with the Patriots, so he came up in the best two run franchises in the NFL.
