Report: Bears want to talk to Vikings' Rogers

Posted by: under Vikings, Bears, NFC, Packers Updated: January 26, 2010 - 8:30 PM

The Chicago Bears have requested permission to talk to Vikings quarterback's coach Kevin Rogers about their offensive coordinator's job, according to the Chicago Tribune. The Tribune reports that the Bears are awaiting a decision from the Vikings about whether they can interview Rogers.

The Vikings could block the veteran coach from talking to their division rival because he remains under contract with the franchise. The Bears search for an offensive coordinator has been a lenghty one. They attempted to interview Packers quarterback coach Tom Clements but Green Bay refused to give Chicago permission to speak to the assistant.

Update: There is a report from a website called Football Scoop that Syracuse has interest in Rogers for its offensive coordinator's job.

Update II: The Sun-Times is reporting the Bears have been given permission by the Vikings to speak to Rogers.
