The Bears Beat (01.25.12): Emery gets strong endorsement for Bears general manager job

January 25th, 2012 - 5:34 pm

Kansas City Chiefs college scouting director Phil Emery got a strong endorsement from famed general manager Scott Pioli for the Bears vacant GM position. The Bears might have trouble luring University of Miami offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, who was the receivers coach in Denver when Jay Cutler was there, to accept the Bears’ passing game coordinator position. And Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall, Cutler’s favorite target in Denver, played coy about a possible reunion in Chicago with his old quarterback.
