Mark Sadowski was promoted to the Bears’ director of college scouting Wednesday, replacing Joe Douglas, who was officially hired by the Eagles earlier in the day.

The St. Rita High School and Tulane alum has worked at Halas Hall since 2005, serving as the senior national scout since 2013. He was the Southeast area scout from 2005-12.

The Bears also promoted Francis Saint Paul from West area scout to national scout, David Williams to West Coast scout, Jeff King to pro scout and Chris White to pro scouting coordinator.

The Bears decided to promote Sadowski earlier this week, sources told the Sun-Times.

Douglas was named the Eagles’ vice president of player personnel on Wednesday after spending a year as the Bears’ college scouting director. Bears GM Ryan Pace allowed him to interview in Philadelphia and, according to Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman in a release, endorsed him.

“I have known Joe for several years and have admired his work with both the Ravens and the Bears,” Roseman said. “He is a guy that we had targeted from the outset.”
