The head coaching search of the Seattle Seahawks is on to the second round of interviews as the team looks to replace the most successful head coach in franchise history. Meanwhile, several other teams across the league are also working on coaching searches of their own, including the Chicago Bears, who are looking for a new offensive coordinator after firing Luke Getsy.

According to a report early Monday morning, the Bears are set to fill that open offensive coordinator spot with the offensive coordinator for the Seattle Seahawks, Shane Waldron.

In his three seasons as offensive coordinator for the Seahawks Waldron’s offenses finished 16th, 9th and 17th in points per game, while finishing 16th, 10th and 12th in points per drive.

Assuming a deal is reached and Waldron joins the Bears, he would be the first member of the Seattle coaching staff known to have departed for another team after the Seahawks reportedly invited the members of the coaching staff to seek employment elsewhere.
