The Eagles are close to hiring Bears scout Joe Douglas to head their personnel department, NFL sources told the Inquirer on Saturday.

The announcement is expected Monday.

Douglas, who has been the Bears' director of scouting for the last year, interviewed with the Eagles on Thursday. He previously spent 15 years as a Ravens scout.

Douglas will report to Howie Roseman, the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, and head the scouting department.

The Eagles suspended their search for Roseman's second in command in January in the hope they would have a larger pool of candidates to choose from after the draft.

While Douglas remains under contract, Bears general manager Ryan Pace likely let his subordinate leave because of the promotion.
