If seems as if Bears fans and players may get their prayers to have Matt Nagy relieved on his incompetence finally answered, and they won’t have to wait until Christmas.
The Bears are on a five game losing steak heading into Detroit to face the Lions in their annual Thanksgiving day game, but even with a likely win coming on Thursday, it won’t be enough for Nagy to retain his position.
According to Mark Konkol of Patch, the Bears will part ways with Nagy after the Thanksgiving game.
“For disgruntled Bears fans looking for something to be thankful for after five straight losses, this is it,” Konkol wrote. “Matt Nagy will coach his last game for the Bears on Thanksgiving in Detroit, a top source with knowledge of the decision told Patch.”
NFL reporter Jordan Schultz tweeted earlier this week that an “overwhelming number” of players on the team’s roster want Nagy to be fired. A source of Schultz’s added that, “[Nagy] lost some of the locker room last season, but now it’s gone.”
Nagy is an underwhelming 31–27 as head coach of the Bears despite having one of the league’s best defenses over a majority of his tenure.
