Rapoport: Bears could fire Nagy after Seahawks game


Yet another reporter is indicating that Sunday may be Matt Nagy’s last as the Bears head coach. Ian Rapoport indicated on the NFL Network that the Bears could fire Nagy on Monday if the Bears rule, because of a new rule that will allow teams to interview head coaching candidates if they’ve already fired their coach, or informed him that he won’t be returning next season.

Of course the Bears could inform Nagy that this will be his last season, while allowing him to finish out the year leading the team. In that case Nagy could coach against the Giants and Vikings, and the Bears could start interviewing candidates as well.

Ryan Pace hired Matt Nagy in 2018 and he quickly provided a spark to the team. The Bears went 12-4 that year and won the NFC North, but lost in their first playoff game. Nagy won the Coach of the Year award that season, but since then things have gone downhill. Over the past three seasons the Bears have a 20-36 record.
