Tuesday began off unusually for the Chicago Bears and head coach Matt Nagy. By the top of the day, unusual wasn’t practically sturdy sufficient of a phrase.
After a tumultuous few days for the coach, in which “Fire Nagy” chants had damaged out in all corners of Chicago (together with at his son’s soccer sport) and a report circulated that the Bears’ Thanksgiving sport in opposition to the Lions can be his final, Nagy emphatically denied the rumors he was on his method out in a press convention.
That’s when issues began to get actually bizarre. According to the Chicago Tribune, someday between that press convention and the crew’s walk-through apply, Nagy met with possession – telling gamers the meeting was about “moving forward” and that “no one knows what tomorrow will bring.”
He didn’t tackle the report or the lingering doubts about his standing with the crew, which left some gamers “angry,” based on the Tribune. Then, Nagy canceled all the crew’s meetings for the remainder of the afternoon – a extremely uncommon transfer, particularly since they’re lower than 48 hours away from kickoff in Detroit.
It leaves the group in a state of unrest. A supply described the dealing with of the scenario to the Chicago Tribune’s Dan Wiederer as “remarkably clumsy,” with the reporter noting that “an organization’s professionalism in moments like these is judged at least somewhat leaguewide by other coaches, execs, etc.”
It looks like Nagy is pretty much as good as gone, however who’s going to wish to take the job as his alternative after every little thing that has gone down? Who leaked the story that he was going to be fired to Mark Konkol, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist? What’s true? What’s not?
The Bears might be a fascinating crew to look at over the following few weeks – for causes completely separate from the mediocre product they placed on the sector.
