Phil Emery, Kansas City Chiefs director of college scouting, is scheduled to interview with the Chicago Bears for their vacant general manager position, according to multiple reports. We first heard about Emery on the Bears interview-list last week.
Emery joined the Chiefs in 2009, the same year as GM Scott Pioli. He has a presence in the draft room as the team's college scouting director. Emery has been in football for 31 years having previously served as the Atlanta Falcons college scouting director.
He does have ties to Chicago as he was an area scout for the Bears from 1998-04.
The other candidates on the list include Tim Ruskell (interim GM), Jason Licht of the Patriots, Jimmy Raye of the Chargers and Marc Ross of the Giants.
