The Chicago Bears season is all but over, as they have one game left remaining on their schedule. After that, their offseason begins and the franchise will aim to improve the roster. There have been numerous reports of Chicago planning to Matt Nagy. However, Nagy responds to Boomer Esiason's earlier report from Wednesday.
Originally it had been reported by Esiason that the Bears plan to fire Matt Nagy after Week 18. With how this season panned out, this wasn't shocking news at all. Chicago has been a hot mess and it's time for the franchise to find a better leader.

However, according to Adam Hoge, Matt Nagy claims he has not been told by the Bears that he will be fired after Week 18. This is the complete opposite of what Boomer Esiason has reported on Wednesday.
Matt Nagy says he has not been told Sunday's game will be his last as #Bears head coach.
"I'm a pretty good source to ask," he says.

At this point, who really knows what is going on in Chicago? This is the second time a report has come out about the Bears wanting to fire their head coach just for Matt Nagy to shut them down. It's been a wild ride for this team this year and Nagy's job status is up in the air.
Hopefully, the Bears do the right thing and move on from Nagy. It was painfully obvious this team needs a better leader. With some exciting prospects on the roster, now is the time for Chicago to find the right person for the job. Justin Fields has all of the potential in the world and a competent head coach is necessary for his development.
We'll see what happens, but all eyes are on Matt Nagy and the Bears at the conclusion of the regular season.
