According to the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Bears are interested in former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano to fill their vacant Defensive Coordinator role. The Bears have an opening at the position after former Defensive Coordinator became the Denver Broncos Head Coach.

Brad Biggs, who covers the Bears, also insists the Bears are willing to promote Ed Donatell, the team’s Defensive Backs Coach, to being the Defensive Coordinator. Biggs insists that if he does not get the Defensive Coordinator job with the Bears, he’s likely to join Vic Fangio’s staff with the Broncos.
