The Chicago Bears fired offensive coordinator Luke Getsy after two seasons, but it seems he still has interest around the NFL.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the Las Vegas Raiders are planning to interview Getsy for their offensive coordinator job this week.
The Raiders named interim head coach Antonio Pierce as their permanent head coach earlier this month. Now, the first-time head coach is assembling his staff, and Getsy is someone who’s garnered interest.
While Chicago had the No. 1 and No. 2 rushing offenses in his two seasons as offensive coordinator with the Bears, there were plenty to be desired from the passing game, which ranked No. 32 and No. 27. Getsy failed to develop quarterback Justin Fields, which is certainly a concern given Las Vegas could be in the market to draft a young quarterback.
Chicago ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in rushing, respectively, in two seasons with Getsy calling plays.

If Chicago opts to trade Fields this offseason — and move forward with Caleb Williams at No. 1 — the Raiders could be a team interested in the fourth-year QB.
Meanwhile, the Bears have already found their offensive coordinator replacement in former Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, who’s an experienced playcaller that’s proven to develop quarterbacks.
