Biggs: Bears want to talk to Vikings QB coach

The Chicago Bears’ first bid to lure a coach from within the NFC North to be their offensive coordinator failed. Now, they’re trying it again.

The club has formally requested permission from the Minnesota Vikings to meet with their quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers about their offensive coordinator position, Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune reported.

The Bears swung and missed when they tried to get an at-bat with Green Bay quarterbacks coach Tom Clements early in the process that is in its 21st day. Rogers is the sixth candidate to be identified. The Bears have interviewed Ken Zampese and Rob Chudzinski and neither one of them remain in play. The club tried unsuccessfully to meet with Jeremy Bates, Hue Jackson and Clements.

Rogers is a 35-year coaching veteran who has spent 28 years in the college ranks where he worked with Donovan McNabb. He’s been credited for some of the work this season with Brett Favre and, before long, the Bears are going to run out of possibilities. He’s worked as a coordinator previously at Notre Dame under Bob Davie.

Stay tuned.
