An Illinois high school has issued an apology to Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy after “Fire Nagy” chants erupted from the crowd during the football team’s game this weekend, according to TMZ. Nagy’s son is the quarterback for the Lake Forest high school football team, who were playing against Cary-Grove. After the head coach was spotted in the crowd during the game on Saturday, Bears fans let him have it.

The principal of Cary-Grove High School has since issued a public apology to Nagy, condemning the actions of the fans.

“On behalf of Cary-Grove High School, I want to assure our community that the chant was not acceptable nor appropriate and was immediately addressed by administration at the game. We also felt it was important to meet with our student superfans that lead our chants and cheers to talk about what happened and give them an opportunity to reflect and correct their actions,” said Dr. Neil Lesinski in the release.

Nagy is undoubtedly an unpopular man in the state of Illinois right now as the Bears find themselves in the midst of a five-game losing streak. While rumors have been flying regarding his future with the organization, nothing is more telling about the public’s perception of him than a student section of high schoolers demanding he’s fired.

The chant was definitely a been a bit over the top, and Nagy certainly didn’t deserve the treatment, but Bears fans are just letting out their frustrations over what has been a heavily disappointing season.
