General manager Ryan Poles is working to reshape the Chicago Bears front office and scouting staff after the NFL draft, his second set of moves after hiring some trusted advisers.

League sources say the Bears dismissed college scouting director Mark Sadowski, a 1992 St. Rita graduate who has been with the organization since 2005, when he was hired as an area scout. Sadowski worked under GMs Jerry Angelo and Phil Emery before Ryan Pace inherited him in 2015 and promoted him to his current role the next year.

Sadowski started with the Bears as a scout in the southeast region, a critical area for all teams, and he covered that area in 2006 when the team selected All-Pro returner Devin Hester from Miami. That began a climb through the ranks of the scouting department as he became a national scout.

The Bears also parted with national scout Chris Prescott and college scouting coordinator Bobby Macedo, according to sources.

Shortly after arriving in January, Poles hired Ian Cunningham as assistant GM. Then he brought Trey Koziol — a Hinsdale Central graduate who played with Poles at Boston College — to Halas Hall from the Kansas City Chiefs with the title of co-director of player personnel.

On Tuesday, the Bears announced they promoted Jeff King to co-director of player personnel, the same title Koziol has. King has been with the Bears since 2016 in the pro scouting department. King’s promotion comes after spending the past two seasons as director of pro scouting. He joined the franchise in 2015 as a scouting intern.

How the Bears will replace Sadowski remains to be seen.
