SPORTS Bears fire Nagy and Pace
2022-01-10

The Chicago Bears fired coach Matt Nagy and General Manager Ryan Pace on Jan. 10, ending his tenure after the team posted a 6-11 record this season, according to ESPN.com and ABC 7 Chicago.

Nagy was named NFL Coach of the Year after his first season in 2018, when he led the Bears to a 12-4 record and the team reached the playoffs for the first time in eight years. He earned praise that season for his offensive wrinkles and humble disposition, but the Bears couldn't sustain that success over the ensuing three seasons.

Over the next three seasons, the Bears would only make the playoffs once and did not have a winning record.

Pace had been the Bears' general manager for six seasons—two more than Nagy had been head coach. However, as they entered this season, many experts believed their fates were tied together. Along with the losing record, Pace's tenure will most be associated with crucial misses at the quarterback position and his move to hire Nagy, per The Chicago Tribune.

Bears leadership must zero in on the right coach to help quarterback Justin Fields develop as he moves into his second NFL season in 2022.
