Movement at Halas Hall: Mike Tice in Town

Per this article, former Minnesota HC Mike Tice has met with the Bears, but for what specific position it is unknown at this point.  

The Bears continued their quest for an improved offense today by interviewing former Vikings coach Mike Tice at Halas Hall, a league source said.

In order to speak with Tice, the Bears had to get permission from the Jaguars, as Tice is the assistant head coach in charge of tight ends in Jacksonville.  

Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver announced that head coach Jack Del Rio would return for the 2010 season, but the team is considering making significant changes.

It is possible the Bears could hire Tice in a capacity other than offensive coordinator.
The Bears also finished up their two-day interview with Bengals quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese.

It would surprise me to have a Position Coach hired before the Offensive Coordinator, but at this point in the search, all bets may be off.  

Tice was the head coach of the Vikings from 2002-2005, and has been with the Jaguars since 2006 as Asst HC/ TEs Coach.

Stay tuned...
