Eberflus ready for Bears hug
Chicago have been looking for a new head coach since firing Matt Nagy, along with general manager Ryan Pace, earlier in January.
Also in NFL news:
Their dismissals came on the back of another disappointing season, with Chicago finishing 6-11 for 2021.
The Bears appointed former Kansas City Chiefs executive Ryan Poles as the team's new general manager on Tuesday, and it seems that Eberflus, who has spent the last three seasons as the defensive coordinator at the Indianapolis Colts, will be the new coach.
Chicago considered the Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and former Colts and Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell, but NFL Network reported they settled on 51-year-old Eberflus as their preferred candidate.
It has also been reported that Quinn has told teams he wishes to stay at Dallas.
