Bears Interview Giants' Ross for GM Job
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- New York Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross has interviewed for the Chicago Bears' general manager vacancy.

Earlier this week, the Bears interviewed New England Patriots director of pro personnel Jason Licht and San Diego Chargers player personnel director Jimmy Raye. Jerry Angelo was fired after an 8-8 season.

Also expected to interview are current Bears director of player personnel Tim Ruskell and Kansas City Chiefs scouting director Phil Emery.

Ross, who interviewed Wednesday, is in his fifth season in charge of the Giants' college scouting department and the team's draft

Also, the Oakland Raiders have asked Chicago for permission to interview new offensive coordinator Mike Tice for their head coaching job. Tice was just promoted to offensive coordinator earlier this month following the departure of Mike Martz.
