Bears Interview Emery for GM Opening
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- Kansas City Chiefs director of college scouting Phil Emery has interviewed for the Chicago Bears' general manager job.

The interview took place on Friday. The Bears are looking to replace Jerry Angelo, who was fired after an 8-8 season.

Emery served as an area scout with the Bears from 1998 to 2004 and was Atlanta's director of college scouting from 2004 to 2008 before working as a regional scout for the Falcons leading up to the 2009 draft. He has spent the past three years in his current role.

The Bears have also interviewed New England Patriots director of pro personnel Jason Licht, San Diego Chargers director of player personnel Jimmy Raye, New York Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross and Chicago director of player personnel Tim Ruskell.
