Default Bears Fire DePaul, engineered Cutler trade

http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/nf...ory?id=4916957

Chicago Bears senior director of pro personnel Bobby DePaul has been relieved of his duties, the team announced Monday.
DePaul headed the organization's pro personnel department for the last nine seasons. According to the team's media guide, DePaul "evaluated players in all ranks of professional football, prepared the club for its acquisitions through trades, free agency or the waiver wire, managed the advance scouting of Bears opponents ... and had a hand in day-to-day football operations."
DePaul was probably best known for orchestrating the Jay Cutler trade. According to the Chicago Tribune, he was escorted out of Halas Hall, the team's practice facility.
DePaul not only engineered the Cutler trade, which sent then-starter Kyle Orton to the Denver Broncos, along with draft picks, he also played a big part in acquiring free agents such as offensive lineman John Tait and running back Thomas Jones. The Tribune also reported that while DePaul's relationship with general manager Jerry Angelo was considered strong, it was known among insiders that DePaul and coach Lovie Smith didn't always agree.
DePaul came to the Bears in 2001 with Angelo after serving as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles player personnel department as a scout after an eight-year career as an NFL assistant coach. DePaul was hired by then-Redskins' defensive coordinator Richie Petitbon in 1989 and was on Washington's staff when the Redskins won Super Bowl XXVI over Buffalo. He then served as a coach on the Cincinnati Bengals staff before going to Philadelphia.

Cutler is a budding director of pro personnel killer.

Skins had 13 and are sitting on 4 this year.

I thought I remember hearing the Skins wouldn't part with two firsts though.

Escorted out of Halas Hall? That's pretty harsh. He didn't go quietly?..

So, if Cutler plays well last year, this guy and all those offensive assistants would have still lost their jobs?

Meet Jay Cutler. By day he's a rocket-armed, gun-slinging quarterback for the Chicago Bears football team. But by night - he takes on an entirely different persona: a coach killer. But Jay, a self-admitted "monster," isn't your average serial killer. He only kills those "who deserve it"; mainly, coaches who have lost the ability to call an effective offense or were never suspected to be able to in the first place.

I think Denver was down to Chi and Washington so I assume both teams were offering similar packages
