January 25, 2022

The Bears are finalizing a deal to make Ryan Poles their next general manager, according to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter.

Poles, 36, previously spent 13 years with the Chiefs. He worked as Kansas City‘s executive director of player personnel in 2021.

Chicago tabbed Poles to replace Ryan Pace, who was fired in January along with coach Matt Nagy. The Bears went 48–65 in seven seasons with Pace serving as general manager, reaching the postseason in 2018 and 2020.
