The Bears were spurned the last time they asked an NFC North team to interview their quarterbacks coach.
The Green Bay Packers turned down their request to talk to Tom Clements for the Bears offensive coordinator post.
But the Bears have received permission from the Minnesota Vikings to speak to quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers about their vacancy, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.
It's believed Rogers will do the interview later this week.
Rogers is under contract to the Vikings through next season, and Vikings coach Brad Childress can decide whether to grant or deny the Bears request. But Childress -- a former quarterbacks coach -- has generally allowed his assistants to interview for promotions.
Rogers drew interest from the University of Miami last year, and he's well-respected, most notably for his work with Donovan McNabb while at Syracuse. In Minnesota, he's worked with Tarvaris Jackson and Brett Favre in 2009.
Rogers is a good communicator, with a strong knowledge of the position and NFL offenses.
A website called Football Scoop is reporting that Syracuse head football coach Doug Marrone has "great interest" in bringing Rogers back to the Orange.
