I wonder if Ossenfort is their presumed GM target.
I was kind of wondering the same thing with the Giants. If reports were accurate that they were interested in Flores, would that move Ossenfort up on their target list? I wouldn't be at all surprised if that is Chicago's plan.
If the HC job is offered, he has no choice but to take it, imo, unless he wants to chance delaying his decision and have the Bears hire someone else, thus potentially shutting him out from other HC jobs altogether.
It sounds like the Bears know who they want for both jobs
supposedly a giants fan, I wonder if he prefers the giants. But the Bears might be giving him the power he wants if they’re getting him before even bringing a GM in so that could make that job more attractive to him.
Unless you are making Flores the defacto personnel guy as well.
I know that is conventional wisdom, but it is not that uncommon. There are many models that CAN work
Reid, mcDermot, shanahan, gruden (?), rivara, rhule, le fleur, Carol all essentially hired the GM. I'm not advocating for it. People act like it's absurd and unheard of because it was not their preference here.
Sounds like a terrible hire. I don't want a choir boy...but got to be, at worst, a decent communicator.
