LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The first attempt by the Chicago Bears to hire a former member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers proved unfruitful, but that won't stop the team from speaking with former Bucs quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt about the same position, according to a source.
The Bears plan to interview Van Pelt sometime this week, according to the source. But it's unclear where the meeting will take place because as of Monday evening, Bears coach Lovie Smith hadn't yet returned to the Chicago area. Smith owns a home in the Tampa area, and it's likely his meeting with Van Pelt could take place there.
