Packers | Team receives permission to interview Rivera

Tom Silverstein, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers have received permission to interview Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera. He is expected to meet with Packers general manager Ted Thompson for a formal interview this week, according to a National Football League source. Any team interested in Rivera has until Friday to interview him, then must wait until after the Bears are eliminated from the playoffs before it can speak to him again. If Rivera were hired, it's questionable whether Packers defensive coordinator Jim Bates would be retained.
