So far this offseason the Kansas City Chiefs haven’t lost any of their coaches or front office personnel to another team. Soon enough that could change.
Director of College Scouting, Phil Emery, is one of four candidates that will interview for the vacant Chicago Bears GM position, the team announced.
Emery will be competing with Jason Licht of the New England Patriots, Jimmy Raye from the San Diego Chargers and the New York Giants’ Marc Ross. The Bears also are said to be considering Tim Ruskell, their Director of Player Personnel.
Emery has spent three years with the Chiefs in his current position, but was an area scout for the Bears from 1998-2004 before moving on to serve as the Director of College Scouting for the Atlanta Falcons for five seasons before being hired by the Chiefs.
GM Scott Pioli is the one that makes the final decisions, but it’s interesting that Emery is in the mix despite the Chiefs not exactly knocking either of the last two drafts — the ones he had a full year of scouting for the Chiefs leading up to — out of the park.
