Bears to Interview Emery, Licht again
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears say they will bring back Kansas City college scouting director Phil Emery and New England pro personnel director Jason Licht for second interviews for their general manager job this week.

The Bears are looking to replace the fired Jerry Angelo.

Emery has spent the past three years as Kansas City's director of college scouting. Licht rejoined the Patriots' personnel department in 2009, after working there from 1999 to 2002.

Bears player personnel director Tim Ruskell, San Diego director of player personnel Jimmy Raye and New York Giants director of college scouting Marc Ross have also interviewed.

Meanwhile, the Bears say offensive coordinator Mike Tice will not interview for Oakland's coaching job after the Raiders ``moved forward with the second phase of their interview process.''
