Bears: it’s over for Matt Nagy
Matt Nagy’s dismissal had been announced since Thanksgiving. Finally, he held on until the end of the season. But not more.
According to ESPN, the Bears coach was fired on Monday. General manager Ryan Pace was also said to have been dismissed.
Anything but a surprise as Nagy’s course in Chicago was marked by an offensive feverishness all the more embarrassing as this sector of the game was supposed to be his strong point.
With 34 wins for 31 losses and two qualifications for the playoffs in four years, the balance sheet is rather flattering. But Nagy never seemed to have a firm grip on his team in general, and his offense in particular. Even though Mitchell Trubisky, Andy Dalton or a very inexperienced Justin Fields didn’t help, his attacking spirit status had generated higher expectations.
After two years of Mark Tretsman, three for John Fox, and four for Nagy, Chicago is again looking for a coach.
