Report says Bears ready to hire former Hawks GM Ruskell

Pro Football reports that it appears that the Bears are going to bring in Tim Ruskell to take over for Bobby DePaul, who was fired earlier in the week:

When the Bears abruptly fired director of pro personnel Bobby DePaul earlier this week, speculation immediately arose that former Seahawks G.M. Tim Ruskell would be hired by his former colleague from Tampa, Bears G.M. Jerry Angelo. We then heard that Ruskell had been calling Angelo on a daily basis, strengthening the possible connection.

We’re now told that the Bears are indeed planning to hire Ruskell, but that they’re waiting for a while in order to not make the “DePaul out, Ruskell in” maneuver look so obvious.

Our guess is that, one way or the other, Ruskell will be working for the Bears by the launch of free agency on March 5.
