It appears that Matt Nagy will be sticking around until the end of the season. If we were honest with ourselves, we knew that this was going to happen. In its 101 years of existence, the Chicago Bears have never fired a head coach before the end of the season. The hope for many here was to see Matt Nagy gone sooner due to the new rule put in place by the NFL that allows teams to do virtual interviews with potential head-coaching candidates.
Apparently, the new rule did not change anything and that could be due to the fact that a decision regarding Ryan Pace hasn’t been made yet. Without a general manager in place, who is going to be doing the interviews? Ted Phillips and George McCaskey shouldn’t be anywhere near the hiring process. Hopefully, a true hierarchy change is about to take place.
How did the stock change on potential replacements for Matt Nagy?
Matt Nagy and the Chicago Bears finally got on the win column last week. It wasn’t pretty, but a risky two-point conversion attempt that was converted by Nick Foles and Damiere Byrd who had to improvise the route. It also required an amazing catch by Byrd. Without this conversion, the team would have either lost again or it would have likely had to try to win in overtime.
With that, let’s take a look at this once again, shall we? Which one of these coaches should replace Matt Nagy next season? Are there others you’d rather consider that I am still missing?
