Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy denies reports about being fired
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said reports about being fired after the Bears’ Thanksgiving Day game against the Lions “is not accurate”
The Chicago Bears 2021 season has been a tough one for the Chicago franchise and its fans, but has been especially unstable for their head coach Matt Nagy.
Following the “fire Nagy” chants that have taken the city of Chicago by storm this week, a report surfaced on Tuesday that the Bears have decided to fire Nagy after the Lions game on Thanksgiving Day.
Matt Nagy defends himself
When asked about the report, Nagy replied that this information “is not accurate,” and clarified that he has good communication with “ownership, with (Bears chairman) George (McCaskey) and (president and CEO) Ted (Phillips) and (general manager) Ryan (Pace). I have not had any discussions."
Nagy also emphasized that his focus right now is on his team winning the upcoming game and uniting the objective.
Nagy, who was hired by the Bears in 2018, led Chicago to their first NFC North title since 2008, and won the Coach of the Year award. A win against the Detroit Lions can bring a leap of faith back to Chicago, and save Nagy’s job.
