The Chicago Bears are reportedly prepared to make a "major push" for Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak.
The Ravens were eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday night after a loss to the New England Patriots, meaning Kubiak is now available to talk to teams about head coaching jobs.
The Bears fired head coach Marc Trestman along with general manager Phil Emery following a 5-11 season. On Thursday, the team hired New Orleans Saints director of player personnel Ryan Pace as their new GM.
Chicago is using former New York Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi as a consultant during its coaching search.
Kubiak, 53, just finished his first season as Ravens OC. He was the Houston Texans head coach from 2006-2013, accumulating a 61-64 record, including a 12-4 season in 2012. He was fired by Houston with three games remaining in 2013, when the team was 2-11.
