so they are hiring a coach before a GM?

Makes sense...
i would imagine they offer him the job today

The Bears have made it clear

they are shopping for a HC WHILE looking for a GM. That may explain why we won't run into too many same candidates for GM with the Bears.
If Flores is their primary HC target

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.
The Bears are a storied franchise.

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.
Hiring a coach before a GM is stupid

Unless you are making Flores the defacto personnel guy as well.
I dont think you take the job  
Dankbeerman : 1/14/2022 10:38 am : link
with it in limbo unless you have an idea who it will be. These guys all talk directley or indirectley Im sure. Also it appears the Bears list is short for GM right now

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.
I don't want him  
Festina Lente : 1/14/2022 1:17 pm : link
Got a bad vibe about him here
I don't see him accepting any job  
JohnF : 1/14/2022 5:45 pm : link
until he knows who the GM is. I doubt he'd want to go through the same thing he did in Miami. And it's not like he'll be hurting for a job, he can easily wait a year and be the #1 choice still.
Wasn't he fired for rubbing players/coached the wrong way?

Sounds like a terrible hire. I don't want a choir boy...but got to be, at worst, a decent communicator.
