Report: Colts' Morocco Brown a candidate for Bears GM role
Indianapolis Colts director of college scouting Morocco Brown is expected to be a candidate for the Chicago Bears general manager role, per Adam Hoge of NBC Sports.
The Bears parted ways with both general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy on Monday following the conclusion of the regular season. Hoge reported that Brown is expected to be interviewed for the role and is considered to be a “strong candidate.”
Brown is expected to be interviewed for the position and is a “strong” candidate, according to league sources. That said, the Bears could focus on hiring a head coach first, which would heavily influence the general manager decision. The team began to do its homework on potential GM candidates last month and Brown was identified as a target. He is said to be interested in the position.
Brown has plenty of connections to the Bears. He spent seven years as the assistant director of pro personnel from 2001-2007. He’s also been very close with Colts general manager Chris Ballard over the last five years. Ballard also has plenty of history with the Bears organization.
Brown had an interview with the Atlanta Falcons during the 2021 offseason but nothing ever came of it. Given the success the team has had—despite this disappointing season—Brown is likely to be approached by a few teams this offseason.
