BEARS SELECTED PHIL EMERY TO BE THE FIFTH MANAGER IN THEIR HISTORY
Tue, 31 Jan 2012 09:13 AM EST

The Chicago Bears recounted they reached an agreement with Phil Emery to become the organization’ 5th director.

Conducting 14 years of NFL experience, Emery spent the last 3 years at Kansas City, as its director of university scouting.

Emery’s return to Chicago marks his second assignment with the organization. Emery worked as an area scout for the club from 1998-2004, and during that period the Bears drafted Pro Bowlers such as linebackers Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs, as well as cornerback Charles Tillman. NFL odds

Other Pro Bowl choices during Emery’s first stint in Chicago included receiver Marty Booker, kick returner Jerry Azumah, safety Mike Brown, defensive tackle Tommie Harris, and cornerback Nathan Vasher.

Before finally settling on Emery as the general manager to achieve success recently-dismissed Jerry Angelo, the Bears contemplated one or two candidates for the position, including actual director of player staff Tim Ruskell, San Diego’s Jimmy Raye, New England’s Jason Licht, and the New York Giants ‘ Marc Ross. After interviewing those candidates, the Bears brought in Licht and Emery earlier in the week for 2nd interviews prior to eventually settling on Emery. NFL spreads

Emery worked as the director of college scouting for the Atlanta Falcons from 2004-2008 before a new regime led by general manager Thomas Dimitroff joined the club and demoted Emery to regional scout. According to an announcer, Emery’s comedown came about thanks to the regimen change and wasn’t indicative of the job he had performed up to that point. The source claimed that despite the demotion, Emery “continued to do a great job,” leading to an acceptance from Dimitroff for the move to Kansas City.

The source also lauded Emery’s “people talents” and capability to evaluate personnel.

During Emery’s reign in Atlanta, 2 of the club’s three first-round picks — quarterback Matt Ryan and receiver Roddy White — became Pro Bowl choices, and the Falcons advanced to the postseason twice, along with a berth in the 2004 NFC title game.

Known as “Doc” to scouts around the NFL, Emery was called a “grinder” by one high-ranking AFC front office executive and “clever” and “extremely pro” by Bears workers that worked with the new General Manager during his first stint with the organization.

A native of Michigan, Emery has 31 years of combined football encounter, starting his job as a student assistant at his alma mater, Wayne State, before becoming a graduate assistant at Central Michigan (1981-82). Emery joined Western New Mexico to assist as the offensive line – strength and conditioning trainer in 1982, where he worked the subsequent 3 seasons.

Emery worked as the defensive line and strength and conditioning trainer at Saginaw Valley State from 1985-87 before joining Tennessee as the Volunteers assistant strength and conditioning coach from 1987-91. His reign at Tennessee was highlighted by back-to-back Southeastern Conference championships in 1989 and 1990.

He assembled his last collegiate stop at the U.S. Naval Academy, where he served as director of strength and conditioning supports as well as an associate professor from 1991-98, helping the Midshipmen win the Aloha Bowl in 1996.

George “Mugs” Halas, the son of Bears founder George Halas, was the team’s first CEO. He was followed by Jim Finks, Jerry Vainisi and Angelo.
