The Chicago Bears are set to interview Flores for their head coaching job.

Flores is the latest of the head coaching candidates for the Bears; they requested to talk to Leslie Frazier, Todd Bowles and Byron Leftwich. They also are going to interview former Eagles Super Bowl winning head coach Doug Pederson.

Flores went 19-14 with the Dolphins in the last two seasons and in the last six matchups against the New England Patriots, beat Bill Belichick four of six times.

The Bears are looking for the next head coach to replace Matt Nagy, who was dismissed on Monday after four seasons.
