(670 The Score) Former NFL executive and current ESPN analyst Louis Riddick will interview with the Lions and Texans this week for their open general manager positions, ESPN reported.

Riddick was previously an NFL scout who rose to director of player personnel positions in Washington and Philadelphia, where he overlapped for three seasons from 2010'-12 with Bears coach Matt Nagy, who was an Eagles offensive quality control control coach back then.

Nagy considers Riddick to be a close friend and is hopeful he does well with his opportunities.

"Louis will do a really good job," Nagy said Wednesday afternoon before the Bears held practice at Halas Hall.

"He's really good at what he does, and I'm sure that he'll do well in all his interviews. I wish him nothing but the best."

Riddick, 51, was set to interview with the Texans on Wednesday and will meet with the Lions on Friday, ESPN reported. The Falcons and Jaguars also have general manager vacancies.

There could be a vacancy in Chicago in a few weeks as well. Should the Bears (6-7) decide to part ways with general manager Ryan Pace this offseason, Riddick might be a candidate for them as well. Of course, it's growing more likely by the day that another team could employ him first.
