Chicago Bears Fire Head Coach

The Chicago Bears have fired head coach Matt Nagy. This move isn't surprising, as there have been rumblings about this possibly occurring beforehand. The team also has fired GM Ryan Pace as well.

When Nagy took over as HC of the Bears during the 2018 season, things worked out swimmingly. They went on to have a 12-4 record and he even was named Coach of the Year. However, he wasn't able to recapture that magic afterward, as he had back-to-back 8-8 records, before ending this year with a disastrous 6-11 campaign. 

With all of this, Nagy's tenure with the Bears as head coach ends with a 34-31 record. However, it's also telling that more than a third of his wins came in the first season. With this, it makes sense for Chicago to make this switch. 

Jerod Mayo and Matt Eberflus have already been named as potential replacement candidates for Nagy, but we will have to wait and see who ends up taking over the role. Whoever does, they will be handed the tough task of trying to get the Bears back on track.
