Mike Sullivan to Interview with the Bears
One guy on a rapid rise up the NFL coaching ranks is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Mike Sullivan, who in four years has gone from wide receivers coach to quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator.
And now, he’s a head coaching candidate.
The Chicago Bears have requested permission from the Buccaneers to interview Sullivan, according to a person informed of the communication between the teams. The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the Bears haven’t commented on potential candidates, said the Bucs granted permission, and Sullivan is expected to interview soon.
