Phil Emery, the Kansas City Chiefs director of college scouting, is among a handful of candidates for the Chicago Bears GM job. In fact, a few people say he's the favorite right now.
So how does Chiefs GM Scott Pioli feel about this? He could lose his college scouting director. The Chiefs GM was quoted by the Chicago Tribune with some glowing praise for Emery.
"He's one of the hardest workers I've ever been around," Chiefs general manger Scott Pioli said. "I can't overemphasize the hard working part. He's outstanding at his job. Detailed, meticulous, organized."

On the one hand, Piol probably doesn't want to lose someone on his staff, especially someone at the director-level. On the other hand, he obviously realizes the best thing to do is help others advance their career.
Sounds like the Bears aren't going to interview anymore candidates so we could hear a decision -- whether it's Emery or not -- sometime soon.
