(670 The Score) The Bears on Thursday conducted interviews for their general manager position with Cleveland Browns vice president of football operations Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and an internal candidate in Chicago assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly.
Adofo-Mensah has spent nine years in the NFL, including the last two in the Browns' front office in his current position. He came up with the 49ers (2013-'19) in their football research and development department. He earned a bachelor's in economics from Princeton and a master's from Stanford.
Kelly has been with the Bears since 2015, when he arrived with former general manager Ryan Pace. He began as the team's director of pro scouting for two seasons before being promoted to assistant director of player personnel.
Kelly has previously been a general manager candidate for other teams, interviewing with the Panthers and Broncos last January.
The Bears previously interviewed Browns vice president of player personnel Glenn Cook for their general manager position. They also interviewed former Eagles coach Doug Pederson for their coaching vacancy.
