And then there were two.
The Bears GM search is down to two men, as Chiefs director of college scouting Phil Emery and Patriots director of pro scouting Jason Licht are the last two mean standing to take over the Bears.
The Bears have eliminated two outside candidates, Jimmy Raye of the Chargers and Marc Ross from the Giants, as well as in-house candidate Tim Ruskell.
The future of Ruskell is not yet known. It likely will be up to the new general manager to decide whether or not to retain the Bears’ director of player personnel.
