Mike Martz arrived in Chicago on Friday to interview for the Bears’ offensive coordinator position, NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi confirmed through a league source.
Martz had two ties to the Bears. Coach Lovie Smith was Martz’s defensive coordinator with the St. Louis Rams. Martz also was Bears defensive line coach Rod Marinelli‘s offensive coordinator with the Detroit Lions.
Martz mostly recently was in the NFL in 2008, when he was the San Francisco 49ers’ offensive coordinator. He spent the 2009 season out of coaching and worked for NFL Network as an analyst.
The Bears are seeking an offensive coordinator to replace Ron Turner, who was fired after the season.
