Report: Bears desire Marcus Brady OC interview

The Bears' hunt for a new offensive coordinator has GM Ryan Poles and head coach Matt Eberflus scratching their heads

 As of Thursday, seven people were being considered for the role, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, as the Bears asked to interview Marcus Brady, a senior offensive coach with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Brady, who is 44 years old, has been an offensive assistant with the Eagles for the past two seasons. He had previously worked for the Indianapolis Colts as an assistant under Frank Reich. 

From 2018 to 2019, Brady coached the Indianapolis Colts quarterbacks, and from 2020 to 2021, he oversaw the offense as offensive coordinator for the Pacers. In the middle of the 2022 season, the Colts let him go.

Brady co-ordinated Eberflus's Indianapolis office from 2018 until 2021.

Brady has a background in Canadian football, having served as offensive coordinator for the Toronto Argonauts before joining the Indianapolis Colts. While coaching the Bears in 2017, he was under the tutelage of Marc Trestman.

The Bears have interviewed two candidates who are not related to the Shanahan-McVay family; Brady is the second of them. Greg Roman, a former offensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens, is the lone other contender with an experience in offense.

Five members of the Shanahan and McVay trees have been interviewed or requested to be interviewed by the Bears: Shane Waldron of the Seattle Seahawks, Klint Kubiak of the San Francisco 49ers, Liam Coen of Kentucky, Greg Olson of the Seahawks, and Thomas Brown of the Carolina Panthers.
