Bears General Manager Search: Chicago Interviews Tim Ruskell Thursday

In the Chicago Bears' continued search for a new general manager, the team interviewed Tim Ruskell on Thursday; Ruskell is currently the Bears' director of player personnel.

Prior to coming aboard with Angelo in Chicago, Ruskell worked five seasons (2005-09) as the president of football operations and general manager of the Seattle Seahawks.

Ruskell started his tenure there with the best run of postseason success in franchise history, which included four playoff wins from 2005-07. But upon Ruskell's ousting in 2009, the Seahawks had stumbled to an 8-19 record dating back to 2008.

Chicago also plans to speak with Kansas City Chiefs director of college scouting Phil Emery on Friday. Emery is the last of the GM candidates announced by the Bears, though the team is open to bringing in additional people as well.
