Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers is scheduled to interview for the Chicago Bears offensive coordinator's job on Thursday, according to an NFL source.
In a story first reported by the Chicago Tribune, the Bears asked for permission to speak to Rogers earlier this week. Rogers, who just completed his 35th season as a coach, has been with the Vikings since Brad Childress arrived in 2006. This is his first job as an NFL assistant but he has extensive experience at the collegiate level.
Include on his resume was a three-year stint (1999-2001) as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach on Bob Davie's staff at Notre Dame. Rogers also served as the offensive coordinator at Syracuse in 1997 and '98. Rogers was an assistant for four seasons at Virginia Tech before joining the Vikings.
The potential move to Chicago not only would be a promotion for Rogers but also put him closer to his son Kevin Jr., who is a pro scout for the Indianapolis Colts.
