Bears interview Leftwich, McKenzie for coach, GM positions

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) The Chicago Bears interviewed Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich and longtime NFL executive Reggie McKenzie for their coach and general manager jobs on Thursday.

Tampa Bay has set franchise records for points and touchdowns in each of Leftwich's three seasons as offensive coordinator - with Jameis Winston at quarterback the first year and Tom Brady the past two. The Buccaneers won the Super Bowl last season after Brady arrived from New England.

Leftwich, a former NFL quarterback, got his first coaching job in the league in 2016 as an assistant on Bruce Arians' staff with Arizona. He spent three years with the Cardinals before joining Arians in Tampa Bay.
