The Bears have hired general manager Ryan Poles and head coach Matt Eberflus, which shifts the focus to assembling their respective staffs.

Both Poles and Eberflus are well on their way to doing just that, getting a head start on those teams still without either a GM or head coach.

According to SI’s Albert Breer, Eagles director of player personnel Ian Cunningham will interview with Poles on Friday afternoon/evening. The expectation is Cunningham will be interviewing to be Poles’ right-hand man in the title of assistant GM.

It was first reported by Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher.

Cunningham has 13 years of NFL experience, getting his start as a player personnel assistant with the Baltimore Ravens in 2008. He also served as an area scout for the Ravens before getting an opportunity as director of college scouting with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017. Cunningham worked his way up to assistant director of players personnel and, most recently as this year, another promotion to director of player personnel.

Elsewhere, Eberflus is starting to assemble his coaching staff. His first hire is expected to be Colts linebackers coach Dave Borgonzi, who worked with Eberflus in Indianapolis.

Eberflus is also targeting Raiders interim head coach Rich Bisaccia for special teams coordinator. There have already been a couple of names mentioned as potential offensive coordinators in Texans pass game coordinator/QB coach Pep Hamilton and Packers passing game coordinator/QB coach Luke Getsy.
