Bears Interested in Packers OC Tom Clements

Tom Clements

The Chicago Bears are reportedly interested in interviewing Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements for their vacant head coaching position.

Just two seasons ago, the Bears tried to interview Clements for their open offensive coordinator position, but the Packers denied them permission.

The Packers can’t deny the Bears again because this is a head coaching job, but they can and probably will deny them access to Clements until their season is over, which NFL rules permit.

And who knows. Maybe by that time they’ll have moved on and hired someone else to replace Lovie Smith. The Bears have expressed interest in four other candidates — Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan, Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong and Cowboys special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis.

Clements is in his first season as the Packers offensive coordinator after serving six seasons as the quarterbacks coach.

If Clements leaves, the smart money is on receivers coach Edgar Bennett to become the Packers next offensive coordinator.

    Rodgers needs to start taking a 10% cut of these guys salaries when they get promotions/better jobs. He makes them all look like geniuses. I also ways find it funny when teams hope they can hire anyone from the successful organizations, thinking everyone employed by the organization must be great, e.g. Josh McDaniels (the dude that drafted Tebow in the 1st round). As long as we have TT, MM, and most importantly Rodgers, we’ll be in contention every year.

      I agree that will be in contention, but with a talent like Rodgers at QB and an Offensive play caller like MM, we should be in the Championship game/ Super Bowl almost every year. That means that while Ted does a nice job of managing the roster by the numbers, he is not that great at talent evaluation. I mean with 6 picks in last years draft on defense alone, that should tell you he’s reacting to deficiencies experienced from prior drafts gone wrong. And you know what? The only player who looks like a solid value choice thus far from last year’s draft is Casey Hayward. So, yeah…um not good enough in my opinion.
