Bears hire former Seahawks GM Tim Ruskell as director of player personnel


The Bears have themselves a new director of player personnel, as today the Bears announced the hiring of former Seahawks GM Tim Ruskell:

The long-rumored hiring of former Seattle Seahawks general manager Tim Ruskell finally became reality Friday when the Chicago Bears announced he is the director of player personnel. Joining the Bears with 23 seasons of experience, Ruskell played a role in two teams — the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Seattle — advancing to the Super Bowl, and three — Tampa Bay, Seattle and the Atlanta Falcons — making it to the NFC Championship Game. Ruskell served the past five seasons as president of football operations and general manager of the Seahawks. “Getting back to what I love: personnel,” Ruskell said when asked what excites him most about the move. “[It’s] my first love and my expertise, it’s what I enjoy doing the most of all the things I’ve done in the National Football League. Just getting back into that big-time, and working with these guys, that’s what excites me the most.”
