Bears hire Matt Feinstein as director of football administration

Matt Eberflus may not have been most Bears fans' choice to be the team's next head coach, but Michael Holley and Mike Smith say his hiring shows that Chicago went about the process in the right way.

The Bears have hired Matt Feinstein as their director of football administration, the team announced Thursday.

Feinstein worked for the NFL’s management council for seven years. He earned a promotion in January to the NFL’s director of labor operations.

Feinstein previously served as a manager and senior manager for the league’s management council.

Feinstein replaces Joey Laine, who was the Bears’ lead negotiator for seven years under former General Manager Ryan Pace. Ryan Poles replaced Pace as the team’s new General Manager last month.
