Fewell meeting with Bears

Chicago is confirming on its Web site that former Buffalo interim coach Perry Fewell is interviewing Monday for the Bears’ defensive coordinator job at Halas Hall.

Fewell appears to be the front-runner for the job, assuming he does not get Buffalo’s permanent position. An announcement could come at any time, provided he prefers the Bears over the New York Giants, who interviewed him last week.

Here’s our friend Jeff Dickerson’s take on the Bears’ multi-pronged search for coordinators over on ESPN Chicago. With Jeremy Bates apparently no longer an option for offensive coordinator, Dickerson suggest Mike Martz and Green Bay quarterbacks coach Tom Clements as alternatives.
