Reggie McKenzie, the first name CSNChicago.com was given, moved on the Oakland Raiders GM job and coach Hue Jackson was promptly fired. McKenzie was explicit, that the change was because he wanted to hire my own guy.

It doesnt automatically follow that the reason he never visited the Bears was that he couldnt have fired Lovie Smith. Jackson defined abrasive; Smith has been anything but.

Exact reasons for lack of interest in Chicago wont be easily discerned. But until the Bears hire (or promote) someone, the question will be there...

Eric DeCosta let all suitors know that he was not interested in leaving the Baltimore Ravens as the heir apparent to the successful operations of GM Ozzie Newsome.

Eagles personnel director Ryan Grigson interviewed with and was set to be hired by the Indianapolis Colts for their job vacancy created by the dismissals of Bill Polian and son, according to Adam Schefter over at ESPN. Atlanta Falcons personnel director Les Snead is under consideration, as is Bears current player personnel director Tim Ruskell.

(Presumably Ruskell wont turn down an interview request. Presumably the Bears wont have to ask, in fact)...
