Phil Emery Is The Bears New General Manager

Phil Emery is the Chicago Bears new GM.

The Bears have officially announced that they've hired Emery, who is now the former Kansas City Chiefs director of college scouting.

Emery spent six years as an area scout for the Bears in the late 90s and early 00s so he has some familiarity.

The search started with five candidates but it got down to Emery and Jason Licht from the Patriots. In the end, Emery got the job.

This means the Chiefs are in need of a new college scouting director. GM Scott Pioli has known Emery's been a candidate for the job so I imagine he's thought about that, or perhaps has a plan in place.

It also means we can commence the "let's trade for this player on the Bears" talk.
