Reports say that the Bears will talk to Shane Waldron and Klint Kubiak about the job of offensive coordinator.

Reports say that the Bears will talk to Shane Waldron and Klint Kubiak about the job of offensive coordinator.

Two well-known prospects for the job of offensive coordinator are being interviewed by the Bears: Shane Waldron, who is the offensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks, and Klint Kubiak, who is the passing game coordinator for the San Francisco 49ers.

Waldron, who is 44 years old, is the offensive assistant of the Seattle Seahawks right now. But now that Pete Carroll isn’t the head coach of Seattle, the new coach may fire Waldron.

Waldron has been the OC for Seattle since 2021. Before that, he was in charge of the Los Angeles Rams’ passing game.

From 2017 to 2020, he played for the Rams. Besides that, he won two Super Bowls while playing for the New England Patriots as an events assistant.

In terms of throwing yards per game, they have been 24th, 12th, and 14th. When Geno Smith won the Comeback Player of the Year Award in 2022, Waldron got a lot of credit for the work he did with him.

Kubiak, who is 36 years old, is in charge of the San Francisco 49ers’ passing game right now. He has been in charge of offense before. In 2021, he was the OC over the Minnesota Vikings.

During the 2022 season, he was also the Denver Broncos’ passing attack coordinator and quarterbacks coach. He’s the younger brother of Gary Kubiak, an NFL coach for a long time.

Before the season, Bobby Slowik moved to become the offensive coordinator for the Houston Texans. Kubiak then took over the role of the 49ers’ running game coach. People in the league have good opinions of Kubiak.

Like his father, Gary Kubiak, he is seen as a smart offensive mind. He has some experience as a play-caller shortly after taking over for the Denver Broncos near the end of last season.

A lot of branches on the Shanahan/Kubiak tree have done well in the NFL. League observers see Kubiak as an important part of Brock Purdy’s great season. When it comes to scoring attack, Seattle has been 16th, 10th, and 17th under Waldron.

The Bears fired five coaches and quarterbacks coach Luke Getsy on Wednesday. There were four coaches fired: Omar Young, who was in charge of running backs, Tyke Tolbert, who was in charge of wide receivers, and Tim Zetts, who was in charge of tight ends.

The Chicago Bears have already started looking for a new offensive coordinator to take over for Luke Getsy, who was fired on Wednesday after two years on the job.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler says that the Bears are going to talk to Klint Kubiak, who is the passing game coach for the San Francisco 49ers, about being their new offensive coordinator.

He used to work in Minnesota as a quarterbacks coach for Mike Zimmer and Kevin Stefanski, who was the offensive coordinator at the time.

Kubiak is the son about Super Bowl-winning boss Gary Kubiak. In 2021, he was an offensive coordinator with the Vikings, so he knows how to call plays.

A year ago, Poles held a press meeting in Halas Hall with the No. 1 pick in hand after a 3-14 season. He said that he would have been completely “blown away” to pick up a quarterback instead of Justin Fields.

Poles eventually moved the pick to the Carolina Panthers in early March for wide receiver DJ Moore along with the rights to the first overall pick in the 2024 draft.

That’s why the Poles were sitting there again on Wednesday at Halas, who Hall with the first pick. But the Bears’ general manager made it clear that even though things are the same this summer, the team has a new chance.

Poles said that the Bears are “gathering information right now” about the upcoming choice they will make about the quarterback. Our team will do everything possible to ensure that the choice we make is the best one for our business.

I believed Justin got better. I believe he is capable of leading this group. But at the identical time, I have to look at something special, and our staff must gaze at everything. And that’s what we’re going to do.”
