CHICAGO (WLS) — The Chicago Bears fired head coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace Monday morning, a source tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

This comes after the team ended another disappointing season, with another loss.

Nagy was fired after yet another disappointing season has ended with a loss to the Minnesota Vikings Sunday.

“We know how the season went this year. We know how it went toward the end of the year and of course today’s game,” Nagy said Sunday. “I’ve never been in this position and for me, I continue to just go about business like normal. I mean that. I have had conversations. Nothing has changed as I told you guys a few days ago. I know this, whatever is supposed to happen will happen.”

Things were looking good early on but the team blew an early lead. The Bears ended with a 6-11 record for the season.

Many believe it’s time to go in another direction.

“It’s gotta be the right move,” said veteran sportswriter Joe Aguilar. “We’ve had three years of mediocre football.”

Nagy was hired in 2018 after serving as an offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Bears would finish with a 12-4 record and an appearance in the playoffs in his first season as Nagy was named the AP NFL Coach of the Year.

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

Pace has been the Bears’ general manager for six seasons, two more than Nagy has been head coach. But as they entered this season, many experts believed their fates were tied together.
