My take on Ruskell's role and title

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

It's been long rumored that the Bears will hire former Seattle Seahawks executive Tim Ruskell.

Odds are, it will become official in the near future. But here's some insight into what his title and role may be, if it comes to fruition.

Although the title isn't nearly as impressive as his last (president of football operations), Ruskell will likely become the Bears director of player personnel. He'll work right underneath Bears general manager Jerry Angelo, with whom he has worked closely in Tampa.

Angelo ousted Bobby DePaul (director of pro personnel) and he opted not to renew the contract of Greg Gabriel (director of college scouting), so Ruskell would presumably take the authority of both of those positions.

Angelo and Ruskell worked together with the Buccaneers from 1987 to 2000, and Ruskell replaced Angelo as the Bucs director of player personnel.

Hopefully he can help Angelo keep his nitty gritties in order. Nice article, but you failed to mention the shame Ruskell is going to feel to call ole jear bear boss.

As many of us have commented, just another disaster in waiting for this dysfunctional organization. This is almost comical. I'd say that I can't wait to see how he screws up the Bears like he did Seattle, except that I'm a Bear fan and I don't want him to screw them up.
