Live Blog: Eberflus, Poles address media for first time originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Change for the Chicago Bears is here. The search committee hired Ryan Poles to be the new general manager and he quickly hired Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus as head coach.
Both men will address the Chicago media for the first time on Monday.
And they've been active since hiring numerous roles to fill out the front office and coaching staff. Poles hired the Eagles' Ian Cunningham to be the assistant general manager.
Cunningham worked as the Eagles director of player personnel. In that role, Cunningham oversaw “the college scouting department while also doing crossover work on the pro scouting side in collaboration with co-director of player personnel Brandon Brown,” per the Eagles.
Eberflus hired Green Bay Packers coach Luke Getsy to be the Bears' new offensive coordinator.
Getsy, 37, has coached at the NFL level for seven years with the Green Bay Packers, most recently as the passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2020. He began in 2014 as an offensive quality control coach, advancing to wide receivers coach in 2016. After serving as Mississippi State's offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach in 2018, he returned to the Packers as quarterbacks coach.
Tonight, at 5:30 p.m. CT, NBC Sports Chicago will air a special edition of the Football Aftershow to recap the news and what McCaskey told the media. Host David Kaplan will be joined by insider Adam Hoge.
