Bears request interview with Todd Bowles

Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace are both out in Chicago, but Mike Florio and Charean Williams don't see things improving as long as team president and CEO Ted Phillips remains in charge.

Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles has another team interested in his head coaching services.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bears have requested an interview with Bowles for the vacancy they created by firing Matt Nagy on Monday.

The Bears are the second team to reach out about interviewing Bowles, who spent four seasons as the Jets’ head coach before moving to Tampa for the last three years. The Jaguars interviewed him last week.

Chicago’s list of candidates is still taking shape. Word on Monday night was that Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier are also candidates and the team is running a concurrent search for a new General Manager. Bears chairman George McCaskey said on Monday that they’d ideally hire a G.M. first, but nothing is set in stone.
