Publicly, the Bears occupy no longer denied the instruct that Matt Nagy has been instructed he’ll be fired after the following day’s game at Detroit.

But privately, Bears chairman George McCaskey instructed gamers and coaches at the moment that there is no longer a fact to the instruct, in step with Dan Pompei of TheAthletic.com.

McCaskey, the grandson of Bears founder George Halas, is the person that would possibly per chance presumably assemble the final resolution on the job inconvenience of Nagy, Commonplace Supervisor Ryan Tempo, workers President Ted Phillips, and other high Bears officers. So if anyone would know whether or no longer Nagy is out, it’s McCaskey.

Unexcited, if Nagy’s job is safe beyond this week, it’s extraordinary that McCaskey wouldn’t relate so publicly. When ESPN incorrectly reported gradual within the 2019 season that head coach Doug Marrone had been knowledgeable he would possibly per chance presumably be fired, Jaguars owner Shad Khan straight away released an announcement denying the instruct, and Marrone did undoubtedly remain for the 2020 season. McCaskey would possibly per chance presumably with out drawback liberate the the same assertion. But he hasn’t.

So hypothesis will proceed that Nagy is on very skinny ice in Chicago. Even supposing the following day proves no longer to be his final game as the Bears’ head coach.
