CHICAGO, Ill. (WANE) – The collapse to the Colts season hasn’t put a damper on the interest in defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, as NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported the Chicago Bears have submitted a request to interview Eberflus for their vacant head coaching position after firing Matt Nagy on Monday.

Eberflus was already drawing interest from the Jaguars – who beat the Colts on Sunday to help keep Indianapolis out of the playoffs. Pelissero reports that Ebeflush will interview for Jacksonville’s head coaching job on Saturday.
