After three seasons with the Chicago Bears, head coach John Fox has been fired.
One year removed from an AFC Championship, Fox found his way out of town with the Denver Broncos and landed with the Bears. He put together a 6-10 season, followed by a 3-win 2016 and 2017 isn’t looking much better.
Fox is 133-122 over his 16 seasons coaching. He’s flirted with championships, winning the NFC title in 2003. Both Super Bowl appearances ended in losses to the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, respectively.
The Bears moved up to snag Trubisky and apparently there were other teams in on him. Plenty of drama followed, as it was reported that not even Fox, the head coach of the team, knew the Bears were taking Trubisky.
In his first season as a pro, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (the No. 2 overall pick) has thrown for more than 2,000 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. He’s just 4-7 as a starter.
The face of the franchise will likely move on with a new head coach en tow.
