Ruskell, who was the Bears' player personnel director, also interviewed for the GM job but the team decided to hire Phil Emery instead.

Don't forget, CSN will be airing Emery's press conference LIVE today at 2:00 p.m. Can't watch it on TV? CSNChicago.com will also be streaming it as part of a watch-and-chat event.

More to come on this developing story.
