Just weeks after the firing of GM Phil Emery and Head Coach Marc Trestman after a 5-11 season, the Chicago Bears have made contact with the New Orleans Saint’s Director of Player Personnel, Ryan Pace about the now vacant GM job in the Windy City. Pace brought high level recommendations with him.
“I’d hate to lose him and yet, he’s ready for a general manager’s job,” Saints GM Mickey Loomis said of Pace at an end-of-season press conference Tuesday. “He’s talented. I would expect to lose him at some point.”
Pace is one of a very crowded field vying for the job Chris Ballard (KC Chiefs Director of Player Personnel), Brian Gain (Texans Director of Player Personnel) and Lake Dawson, the Titans VP of Player Personnel.
