Syracuse not option for Rogers

CHICAGO -- If the Chicago Bears are seriously interested in hiring Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers to be their next offensive coordinator, then another major obstacle was removed on Friday.

There had been strong speculation Rogers was considering a return to Syracuse, but the school announced Fridaythat head coach Doug Marrone will double as the team's offensive play-caller next season.

Virginia, another rumored potential destination for Rogers, hired a new offensive coordinator on Thursday.
