Matt Nagy assumes he will continue to coach Chicago Bears
The Chicago Bears are in a tough spot where many are calling for them to fire their head coach. The team has never done that during the regular season, but this is also the first year that coaches can be interviewed this week and next. With that in mind, there were plenty of questions about whether or not Nagy would get fired.
Nagy was set to address the media this week, and reporters were sure to ask about his status, considering it is the biggest piece of news this year.
After admitting that his communication with ownership did not change this year from years past, he was asked whether or not he assumes he will continue to be the Chicago Bears head coach. He answered as firmly as you can.
This obviously could be wrong. Not only could Nagy be lying, but he could also be stunned in the next couple of days by news of his dismissal. However, at this point, it is easy to tend to believe him.
As noted, the Bears are a team that has its principles. Whether they are right or wrong, they would probably need a historic issue to set history with an in-season firing. They seem to view that as tacky and unprofessional. With that in mind, if they are going to pay the respect of letting a coach play out the string, they surely would not be the type to stun a coach by blind side firing him.
Of course, coaches, players, and even Nagy himself understands his seat his hot. He was not asked and did not need to answer whether he thinks he will be coaching in the offseason. However, when asked about the next two games he was firm. It would be surprising if the Chicago Bears made a coaching change in the next two weeks. After the season, anything can happen.
