The truth about Bears head coach Matt Nagy’s job security after firing rumors
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy is in serious jeopardy of losing his job. While there have been a myriad of rumors stating that Nagy would be fired, the Bears have not done so yet; however, the possibility of him keeping his position is extremely low, per Jason La Confora of CBS Sports.
Nagy left the Kansas City Chiefs as their offensive coordinator to become the Bears’ head coach back in 2018. In his first season, the 43 year old was extremely successful, leading Chicago to a 12-4 record and winning the NFC North, something the organization hadn’t done since 2010. He was also given coach of the year honors for an extremely promising start to his tenure.
However, the same sort of success could not be replicated in the next two seasons (2019 and 2020), when the Bears went 8-8 in both years. Additionally, Chicago failed to win a single postseason game in the two times they managed to reach the playoffs.
The fans of Chicago and ownership are getting restless, as the Bears have not maintained a high level of success for many years, despite the various weapons the team has had. Given his offensive background, the Bears believed that Nagy would aid in the team’s offensive output. Yet they are currently almost at the very bottom in the league in terms of team offensive stats, just ahead of the Texans. Moreover, recently drafted quarterback Justin Fields has not been as good as advertised, which could be partly due to the schemes and plays of Nagy.
The Bears are 4-7 right now, and if they do not turn things around, Matt Nagy’s time in Chicago will not last much longer.
