    Getty Bears head coach Matt Nagy walks the sidelines as his team takes on the Detroit Lions. You can very likely count current Northwestern Wildcats head coach Pat Fitzgerald out of the Matt Nagy sweepstakes. Fitzgerald is one coach who won’t be leading the Chicago Bears any time soon, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. “It has been well-known throughout the industry for years how high Bears ownership is on Northwestern head coach Pat Fitzgerald, who numerous NFL teams have pursued in recent years,” La Canfora reported on November 28. “However, sources said that Fitzgerald, who recently signed a big extension to remain at the school he also played for, would not be interested in a jump to the Bears.” ALL the latest Bears news straight to your inbox!

    Getty Could Patriots OC Josh McDaniels replace Matt Nagy? One NFL insider is naming names when it comes to potential candidates to replace Matt Nagy, should the Chicago Bears choose to move on from the struggling head coach. The Bears are “expected to consider” New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to replace Nagy, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. “Nagy is under heavy fire from fans, there was a strong push from that fanbase for a coaching change last year, and the team has been a tough watch for most of this season, including an ugly win at Detroit on Thanksgiving,” La Canfora reported on November 28. He then shared details about who the team is expected to be interested in as a replacement for its current coach, who will likely ride out the season before being let go.

    Getty Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has been named a top contender to replace Matt Nagy. Barring and unforeseen miracle, the 4-7 Chicago Bears will be moving on from head coach Matt Nagy after the season. The Bears snapped their five-game losing streak against the Detroit Lions week 12, but with opponents like the Arizona Cardinals and Green Bay Packers coming up over the next two weeks, the odds strongly favor Chicago ending this season with a losing record. Nagy was on the hot seat entering the season, and rumors and reports have been flying for weeks suggesting his dismissal is inevitable. The Bears have never fired a head coach during the regular season before, so his ouster will likely come sometime after Week 18 in early January. With another head coaching change likely, potential candidates to replace Nagy are naturally being tossed around — and one intriguing name is currently coaching up in Green Bay.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy confirmed Friday that quarterback Justin Fields has cracked ribs.

    Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy came into the Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions with uncertainty about his future with the organization mounting. Nagy was linked to reports earlier in the week that claimed he was going to get fired after the Lions game. ESPN shot down the report, saying Nagy was told the initial rumors were untrue. Regardless, Nagy and the Bears needed a win Thursday against the winless Lions and did just that.

    The Bears leaked Matt Nagy’s potential firing just to ‘galvanize’ the locker room ahead of a Thanksgiving matchup with the winless Lions. If you need to put your head coach through what can only be described as a week of complete hell just to beat the Detroit Lions, then you’re managing your football team wrong. Yes, I’m talking directly to you, Ryan Pace and the Chicago Bears front office. Per Ian Rapoport, “amid a report about a potential firing, #Bears coach Matt Nagy gets a Thanksgiving W with a last-second FG. The hope was the report would galvanize the locker room. For this week, it all results in a win.” Yay? Either the Bears are trying to spin Nagy’s perseverance in an attempt to keep him on board far longer than most fans would like, or they actually used the media to scare their head coach into winning football games. Either way it’s weird. Bears need to fire Matt Nagy soon despite winBeating the Lions is not an example of a team turning things around. If anything, the Bears won...
    Getty Todd Bowles We heard a few different names, but one suggested by Reyna stood out. The Heavy on 49ers beat writer called out Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive coordinator Todd Bowles as the best option to replace Nagy. Todd Bowles’ Resume In 5 years as an NFL head coach, things didn’t go well for Bowles. He took over on an interim basis with the Miami Dolphins for three games in 2011. He finally got his opportunity to completely man the ship in 2015 with the New York Jets. Things started well for Bowles. He posted a 10-6 record in his first season. Unfortunately, Bowles’ Jets teams went 5-11, 5-11 and 4-12 before he was relieved of his duties after the 2018 season. Overall, as a head coach, Bowles owns an unimpressive 26-41 record. Don’t expect Bears fans to be jumping for joy when they look at that record. However, since he left the Jets, Bowles took over as the defensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2019. Bowles deserves credit for helping to build an...
    DETROIT (CBS) — Head Coach Matt Nagy will be at the helm in the Bears’ Thanksgiving Day matinee against the winless Detroit Lions. Before the team headed to Michigan, Bears Chairman George McCaskey reportedly told the coaches and players there is no truth to the report claiming Nagy would be fired after the Thursday game. READ MORE: One Man Killed, One Wounded In Knife Fight At Clark/Lake Loop 'L' StationEarlier this week, Mark Konkol with The Patch reported the Bears informed Nagy that Thursday’s game will be his last as coach, but during his Tuesday press conference at Halas Hall, Nagy said “that is not accurate.” Nagy said he has not had any such discussions with Bears chairman George McCaskey, CEO Ted Philips, or general manager Ryan Pace. “I have great communication with ownership, with George and Ted and Ryan, but I have not had any discussions,” he said. Nagy said he doesn’t expect to talk to Pace or team ownership again until after Thursday’s game, and would not reveal the last time he spoke to them. READ MORE: Getting...

    It might be a different story if Matt Nagy and the Chicago Bears lose to the lowly Detroit Lions, but for now, he said he hasn’t been told he’s getting fired. Nagy was responding to a report from former Chicago Sun-Times reporter Mark Konkol, now of Patch.com, who wrote that Nagy was told he was getting canned Friday.

    According to popular lore, when the American humorist Mark Twain was asked about rumors that he was gravely ill, he replied, “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” The quote itself is somewhat exaggerated, but the gist remains the same. Matt Nagy didn’t go quite that far Tuesday afternoon, but he did use the word “inaccurate” to describe a report that the Chicago Bears have informed him they will fire him after Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field. The fact the Bears let the Patch.com report by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Mark Konkol sit out in the open all morning meant no one felt compelled to rally to Nagy’s defense, whether the report is true or they don’t want to get into the business of commenting on every report that comes along. It was a weird day at Halas Hall, but that’s the way it goes sometimes when a team is mired in a five-game losing streak that includes blown leads in the final minute of the last two games.

    Matt Nagy has faced questions about his job security with the Chicago Bears before, but never quite like Tuesday morning at Halas Hall. As the Bears were in the middle of preparing for Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions, Patch.com reporter Mark Konkol, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 2011 while at the Chicago Sun-Times, published a report that Nagy had been informed the game would be his last as Bears coach. After nearly three hours of silence from his Bears bosses, Nagy entered the Halas Hall media room at 12:01 p.m. and refuted the report himself. He said he had not yet spoken to Bears Chairman George McCaskey, President and CEO Ted Phillips or general manager Ryan Pace this week and hadn’t been told he would be fired. “That (report) is not accurate,” Nagy said. “I have great communication with ownership, with George and Ted and Ryan, but I have not had any discussions.” Nagy’s denial during a 10-minute news conference was just one piece of a strange day in Lake Forest as the Bears...
    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — Who coaches the Chicago Bears after Thursday seems to be the bigger topic now than who their starting quarterback will be this week. Bears coach Matt Nagy said Tuesday Andy Dalton will start against the Detroit Lions for injured Justin Fields, then spent half of his press conference dealing with a report saying he has been told he will no longer coach the Bears after Thursday’s game. “That is not accurate,” Nagy said of the report, which appeared on Patch.com. The Bears have lost five straight and for three straight years have had losing streaks of four games or more. So Nagy’s job status going forward has been a hot debate throughout Chicago. Chants of “Fire Nagy,” were heard at times in Soldier Field during Sunday’s 16-13 loss to Baltimore — and even at the United Center during a Chicago Bulls game. The report about the firing was by Pulitzer Prize winner Mark Konkol, a former news reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times. It did not indicate a source. Nagy said he normally talks...

Following a report that Nagy will be fired by the Bears following their Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions on Thursday, Nagy shut down those rumors on Tuesday, November 23. Via Albert Breer of NFL Network: “That is not accurate,” Nagy said. “I have great communication with ownership, George [McCaskey] and Ted [Phillips] and Ryan [Pace], and I have not had any discussions [on that].” Rumors of Nagy’s possible departure have reached a breaking point following their 16-13 loss to a Baltimore Ravens squad led by second-year player Tyler Huntley. According to insider Jordan Schultz, Nagy has lost the Bears’ locker room. “An overwhelming number of Bears’ players want Matt Nagy gone, league sources say. ‘He lost some of the locker room last season, but now it’s gone,’ one source adds. One key holdup: No HC in the 101-year franchise history has ever been let go during the season,” says Schultz. During...

    The Chicago Bears have reportedly made the decision to fire head coach Matt Nagy. According to The Patch, Nagy has been informed that the Thanksgiving game against Detroit will be his final game with the team.

    More writing is being tattoed onto the wall when it comes to Matt Nagy’s future as head coach of the Chicago Bears.  All Chicago Bears fans want for the holidays is a new head coach, but it’s starting to sound like they might not have to wait long to open their present. Mark Konkol, who is not a beat writer or an NFL insider but rather a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who hails from Chicago, apparently has some tea on the immediate future of Matt Nagy. More specifically, how that future will immediately stop being involving the Bears. To be completely clear, this was not a report that Nagy will be fired nor should it be taken as such. Instead, the fact that someone not directly connected to the Bears is hearing that Nagy is out is yet another indication that the writing has been etched into the wall as far as his ultimate fate in Chicago. Here’s the rub, though: Konkol was on ESPN 1000 in Chicago and relayed what he says is a reliable and well-placed source that told...
    Getty Bears fans have taken their dislike for Bears head coach Matt Nagy to a new level. Chicago Bear coach Matt Nagy may be the most unpopular man in the Windy City right now, but some fans of the team are taking their dislike for the Bears head coach too far.

One Twitter user shared a video from the Lake Forest-Cary-Grove game in which fans can be heard chanting “Fire Nagy” in the stands.

    Chicago Bears fans are not the only ones ready for changes at Halas Hall, with players reportedly wanting Matt Nagy fired. On Sunday, the Chicago Bears lost their fifth game in a row in disastrous fashion at home against the Baltimore Ravens. A botched handling of timeouts and a defensive combustion led to the Ravens coming back to sneak out of Soldier Field with a much needed win to maintain hold of the AFC North. Bears head coach Matt Nagy is finding his seat even hotter than it was before. TV broadcasts could clearly pick up “Fire Nagy” chants at the Bears’ home field and continuously showed frustrated fans finally having enough.

    At the end of a brutal Sunday afternoon, on the heels of his team’s fifth consecutive loss, with the aggravation of a fed-up city echoing into the evening, Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy stood at a lectern inside Soldier Field and stammered his way through a recap. Nagy had to find some way to describe his team’s galling 16-13 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, an unbelievable defeat characterized by confusion, chaos and collapse. Nagy had to answer for all that went wrong as the Bears — on the doorstep of a relieving victory — again found a way to slip on a banana peel, fall into a pit of quicksand and get stuck directly under a cloud of falling anvils. Honestly, that’s how cartoonish this has become. There are new and surreal twists to the same old painful story. A once-proud football franchise remains floundering and seemingly directionless. “(This sits with me) just like it sits with everybody else,” Nagy said. “You’ve got to finish.” Even after a game-winning moment — Andy Dalton’s 49-yard touchdown pass...
    Getty Head coach Matt Nagy of the Chicago Bears is not a popular man in Chicago right now. The boo birds were out in full force at Soldier Field during the Chicago Bears‘ Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. It was Chicago’s fifth loss in a row, and the second straight season the team has lost 5+ consecutive games. It was also the second time in two games the Bears lost in heartbreaking fashion in the final minutes. “Obviously it is unfortunate to lose the game that way we did back-to-back weeks like that. The guys are battling, but in the end, we’re just not finishing,” Nagy said after the game on November 22. The Bears head coach entered the season on the hot seat after back-to-back 8-8 seasons, and after Chicago’s 16-13 loss to the Ravens, Nagy fell to 0-4 coming out of the bye week. Preparation, for one reason or another, has not been his strong suit. What does it say about Matt Nagy’s offense that every time a veteran comes in cold, he has...

Chicago hosted the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon. While Baltimore has the better roster, the Ravens were without starting quarterback Lamar Jackson. Though his backup Tyler Huntley had the good Utah Utes vibes carrying over for him after last night’s big win, it was a total botch job of a coaching performance out of Nagy.

    Chicago Bears legend Dick Butkus didn’t hold back when ripping into current head coach Matt Nagy and the team’s current offensive line. Despite Justin Fields’ best efforts, perhaps the best showing of his young career to date, the Chicago Bears fell short against the Steelers on Monday Night Football in Week 9, dropping to an abysmal 3-6 heading into the bye week. It’s been a war of attrition for the Bears in many aspects. Head coach Matt Nagy has incessantly been under fire for his game-planning, play-calling and much more. Meanwhile, the offensive line has consistently allowed pressure to get into Fields’ face and, uncomfortably often, deliver big hits on the future of the franchise.

    Getty The Chicago Bears are said by one NFL insider to be looking for a new head coach to replace Matt Nagy at season's end. Is it finally happening? Rumors of Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy’s exit have been popping up since the team had a six-game losing streak in the middle of the 2020 season. After finishing 12-4 his first year with the team and winning Coach of the Year honors in 2018, Nagy has a record of 19-21, and he has consistently brought one of the league’s most inept offenses to the table. The Bears have never fired a head coach during the regular season since the team was founded in 1920, and they’re very likely not going to start now. But according to one prominent NFL insider, Benjamin Allbright of KOA 850AM in Denver, Chicago has already begun the process of looking for its next head coach.

    LAKE FOREST, Ill. (CBS) — Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy’s whereabouts during his COVID-19 quarantine have been revealed – he stayed in a hotel until being cleared on Tuesday. As CBS 2’s Matt Zahn reported, Nagy was back at Halas Hall for Bears practice on Thursday. Also a key returnee was David Montgomery, who is back from injured reserve after missing four games with knee injury. Montgomery looked good, but it’s not clear yet if he will be able to play Monday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
