Bears request to interview Reggie McKenzie for G.M.

The Bears and Texans were quick to get ahold of Brian Flores after his surprise firing in Miami, but Tony Dungy explains why teams would be wise to take their time and make their decision carefully.

Another candidate has emerged in the Bears’ search for their new General Manager.

According to Albert Breer of, Chicago has put in a request with Miami to interview Reggie McKenzie for the position. McKenzie, who was the Raiders’ General Manager from from 2012-2018, is now a Dolphins’ senior personnel executive.

When with the Raiders, McKenzie drafted quarterback Derek Carr, edge rusher Khalil Mack, and receiver Amari Cooper — cornerstones of the team that went 12-4 and earned a Wild Card berth in 2016.

McKenzie was fired in December 2018 toward the end of Jon Gruden’s first year back as head coach. The Dolphins hired him in February 2019.

The Bears fired G.M. Ryan Pace along with head coach Matt Nagy back on Jan. 10.
