The Chicago Bears fired head coach Matt Nagy after four seasons, which finds them searching for their 17th head coach in franchise history.

Bears Chairman George McCaskey will head the search for a new head coach and GM, alongside President/CEO Ted Phillips and Hall of Fame executive Bill Polian.

McCaskey, who’s ultimately in charge of making the final call, said they won’t necessarily look for an offensive or defensive guy. They’re looking for the best guy and leader for the job.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Bears have requested to interview Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn for their head coaching vacancy.

Before joining Dallas, Quinn served as the Falcons head coach from 2015 to 2020. Quinn is a defensive-minded head coaching prospect who boasts 20 years of NFL coaching experience and could certainly be an intriguing option for the Bears, who reportedly were considering hiring Quinn back in 2015 before going with John Fox.

The Bears have also requested interviews with Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett among others.

Here’s a look at the complete list of head coach and GM candidates the Bears have requested to interview:
