The Bears started the interview process for their offensive coordinator search with another assistant with whom Lovie Smith has worked.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese worked with Smith in St. Louis with the Rams in 2001 and 2002.
Zampese's interview with Smith is expected to end Wednesday.
The Bears interviewed Perry Fewell to be the team's defensive coordinator on Monday, and they are awaiting a decision from him. But the Bears may be moving to fill the offensive coordinator slot at a slower pace.
Fewell also interviewed with the New York Giants for their defensive coordinator opening last week.
