Mike Sullivan has significant competition for Bears job



If Mike Sullivan hopes to land the Bears’ head-coaching post, the Bucs offensive coordinator will have to beat out a growing and impressive field of candidates.

The Bears are talking to numerous prospects, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Among those known to have interviewed or expected to interview in the coming days are Broncos offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong, Cowboys special teams coordinator Joe Decamillis, Saints offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael and Packers offensive coordinator Tom Clements.

Sullivan reportedly met with Bears general manager Phil Emery on Wednesday.

Emery hopes to reach a decision sometime before the middle of the month.
