To our knowledge, Allen’s interview will mark the end of the first round for George McCaskey and his hiring committee. So far, the Bears have three known finalists for their head coaching vacancy: Eberflus, Quinn and Caldwell. Ryan Poles is the only GM finalist that we know of, but that could change given Morocco Brown and Omar Khan were expected to interview on Monday.
There has not been a ton of movement in this year’s hiring cycle. Out of four GM vacancies, only the Giants have hired a new leader. They decided to bring in Joe Schoen last Friday. Meanwhile eight teams are interviewing new head coaching candidates this offseason, and no one has announced a new hire.
With the Buccaneers, Bills, Packers and Titans all losing over the weekend, more reports of second interviews could begin surfacing soon, too.
