NFL: Emery praises Lovie, turns attention to search
Twenty-four hours after he fired Lovie Smith, Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery praised the former coach and then launched into an explanation of what he’s seeking in a replacement.
Emery has begun a fast-paced process that is expected to include a long list of candidates. Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan and Atlanta Falcons special teams coach Keith Armstrong have interviews this week.
The search is expected to include coaches from all areas of the game – offense, defense, special teams, NFL and college. Emery has interviews scheduled for next week also, possibly including candidates involved in wild-card round games this weekend.
