Fox fired as Bears' head coach

Fox fired as Bears' head coach

On Sunday, there were reports that Fox was set to coach his last game with the Bears, and he was on the hot seat all season, so this does not come as a surprise.

While the Bears' 5-11 record this season and 14-34 overall mark since Pace took over as general manager is hardly a reason for confidence, Pace feels good about the foundation in place and knows that more work must be done.

Fox faced many obstacles, perhaps none greater than injuries: the Bears placed 16 players (9 starters) on season-ending injured reserve in 2017, one year after leading the league in starters' snaps lost due to injuries. The Bears haven't finished above.500 since they let Lovie Smith go following a 10-6 finish in 2012 and haven't been to the playoffs since 2010.

After departing Carolina in 2010, Fox immediately landed the job as head coach of the Denver Broncos, where he spent four seasons and went 46-18, including a pair of 13-win campaigns. The Bears would likely want to hire an offensive mind to help develop rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

Never considered a strong in-game coach, Fox seemed to lose the fan base through his ultra conservatism, in addition to his unwillingness to divulge even the most benign information to the media. General manager Ryan Pace, who reportedly will be retained, informed Fox of his dismissal on Monday morning. The Bears are in the midst of another coaching search and have what feels like their annual draft pick slotted among the NFL's worst clubs.
