Brian Flores, who was fired as Dolphins coach Monday, is planning to interview with the Bears for their head coaching job, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

Flores was fired by owner Stephen Ross after going 9-8 this season. After compiling a 10-6 record last year, Flores is expected to draw interest for multiple vacancies.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero tweeted, "After his surprise dismissal Monday, Flores is expected to be hot in this cycle. Chicago gets the first confirmed interview."

The Bears fired coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace on Monday after finishing 6-11.
