New Bears GM Ryan Poles Continues Busy Schedule Of Head Coach Interviews

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Now that the Bears have a new general manager in Ryan Poles, next up is hiring a new head coach.

As CBS 2's Marshall Harris reported, the Bears on Wednesday were conducting second interviews with Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus and Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. That was after meeting with former Colts and Lions head coach Jim Caldwell on Tuesday night.

There was no word late Wednesday if any more finalists would be getting a second interview this week. But the head coach hire appears to be squarely on Poles.

You might have been fast asleep at 6 a.m., but Poles was not. He got up bright and early to start his day looking for the next Bears head coach.

Meanwhile, Poles gives the sense that he's not camera-shy – although anyone who attended his wedding already knew that. This YouTube video shows a full-on skit by Poles and his wife, Katie, that they filmed for their wedding reception 10 years ago.

It shows somebody who knows how to have a good time and doesn't take himself too seriously.

We have not had a chance to hear directly from Poles yet. There have been no scheduled news conferences, as they have been busy with coach interviews.

But when a news conference does come around, that wedding video is sure to come up.
