Tim Heitman-US PRESSWIRE

On the heels of Phil Emery's press conference this morning, Jay Glazer is reporting that the Chicago Bears are requesting permission to interview Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis.

From Wikipedia, Decamillis' resume:

1988–1992

1993–1996

1997–2006

2007–2008

2009–present
Denver Broncos
(special teams coach)
New York Giants
(special teams coach)
Atlanta Falcons
(special teams coach)
Jacksonville Jaguars
(special teams coach)
Dallas Cowboys
(special teams coordinator)

From his bio on the Cowboys team page:

Now in his 24th season as an NFL coach, Joe DeCamillis enters his third season as the Dallas Cowboys special teams coordinator after two seasons in which Dallas' special teams units flourished under his guidance. DeCamillis has served as the team's special teams coach in 18 of his previous 23 years as an NFL coach, and in 15 of the last 17 seasons, a player on DeCamillis' special teams unit has returned either a punt or a kickoff for a touchdown. In total, DeCamillis coached units have racked up 25 returns for touchdowns (15 via punts and 10 via kickoff returns).

Punter Mat McBriar earned his second Pro Bowl nomination in 2010 as he led the league in both gross (47.9) and net (41.7) averages. It marked the first time in club history a Dallas punter led the league in both categories. Kicker David Buehler picked up where he left off on kickoffs in 2010, adding 22 touchbacks to finish fourth in the league. As a first-timer on PATs and FGs, Buehler finished 42-of-44 and 24-of-32, respectively.
