Reports are starting to come in that after Thursday’s game with the Detroit Lions, the Chicago Bears will be relieving head coach Matt Nagy of his duties. The 2018 Coach of The Year has seen his team slowly decline in each of his four seasons in Chicago.

A change at head coach is all but set in stone for the Bears heading into next season.

The Bears organization feels the franchise has underachieved in Nagy’s tenure as the head man. The team currently sits at 3-7, coming off of back-to-back seasons with 8-8 finishes.

With a stout defense, the issue with the Bears has been on the offensive side of the ball. The side that Nagy is a specialist in.

Nagy hoped to have found his franchise quarterback in Mitch Trubisky, but that failed experiment has long since moved on, as the Bears have rookie quarterback Justin Fields running the show. Fields dealt with an injury on Sunday in the Bears’ loss to the Ravens, which could jeopardize the young signal-caller making his first Thanksgiving start.

If Thursday is the last time Nagy finds himself on the Chicago sideline, it will be in a forgetful game against a forgetful opponent. That could be the perfect summary of the Nagy era.
