Bears may stay in house, hire Tim Ruskell as G.M.


When the Bears announced that they had fired General Manager Jerry Angelo, they said director of player personnel Tim Ruskell would oversee the front office until a replacement for Angelo could be found.

Now there’s talk in Chicago that the replacement for Angelo will be Ruskell.

John Mullin of writes that the sentiment in Chicago is that Ruskell has done a good job in his two years with the Bears and may deserve to keep the job on a permanent basis.

The hiring of Ruskell, who spent five years as G.M. of the Seahawks, wouldn’t satisfy Bears fans who think a major shakeup of the front office in order. But he may be the man for the job.
