The Chicago Bears are wasting no time compiling names to interview for their GM and head coaching vacancies. According to NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Bears have put in a request to interview Pittsburgh Steelers' VP Omar Khan. Additionally, Chicago requested an interview with New England Patriots' scouting director Eliot Wolf.

Omar Khan and the Pittsburgh Steelers

Omar Khan spent the last two decades with the Steelers' organization. He's known in Pittsburgh as the "cap guy" and helped the team win two Super Bowls in his time there. He is widely regarded as the obvious successor to Kevin Colbert, the current GM in Pittsburgh. But he has been interviewed several times, including last year, for open GM spots.

Khan almost took a job with the Houston Texans before they hired Nick Caserio from New England. He also interviewed for a job with the Arizona Cardinals but did not take a position.
