More change is afoot in the Chicago Bears’ front office. League sources say the latest scout to leave is Ted Monago, who was allowed to depart for a promotion as national scout of the St. Louis Rams. A year ago, Monago was promoted by the Bears to the position of executive scout and named to oversee the critical Southeast conference. Monago is a longtime Bears employee who has been responsible for different regions during his time with the team. The Bears drafted two players from Monago’s conference this year in second-round pick Jon Bostic and sixth-round pick Cornelius Washington. Monago is the third member of the front office to leave this offseason. Last week, director of pro scouting Chris Ballard went to the Kansas City Chiefs to become director of player personnel. Previously, regional scout James Kirkland was let go. Monago was known to be highly regarded at Halas Hall during the regimes of general manager Jerry Angelo and his successor, Phil Emery.
