The Bears on Saturday have announced that they have reached an agreement with Phil Emery to become the team’s new general manager, replacing Jerry Angelo.
Emery, who was a scout with the Bears from 1998-2004, was most recently the Kansas City Chiefs’ director of college scouting. He is expected to bring a strong work ethic and a more keen awareness of analyzing college prospects than Angelo had during his time with the Bears.
According to the Bears’ website, Emery will be introduced at a press conference at 2 p.m. Monday.
