The Bears have not yet hired Tim Ruskell, according to a team spokesperson.
The former Seahawks general manager is close to Bears general manager Jerry Angelo and it has long been rumored that he will eventually replace ousted senior director of pro personnel Bobby DePaul, which is why a ProFootballTalk.com report that cited an NFL source and claimed that Ruskell had joined the front office did not seem far-fetched.
The Bears deny it, however, although at this point when Ruskell joins the front office may be a formality. We've been told that it will most likely happen after the draft, which seems to make sense. But you never know.
