Nagy coached the Bears for four seasons and had a record of 34-31. He had an 0-2 postseason record, making the playoffs in the 2018 and 2020 seasons.
After going 12-4 during the 2018 season, the Bears lost in the NFC Wild Card Round on a “double doink” field goal attempt by Cody Parkey, which eliminated them from the playoffs.
The Bears also made the playoffs in 2020, going 8-8. Since the 12-4 season though, they have not posted a winning record in a season.
After spending time in the Saints’ organization, Pace was hired as the Bears’ general manager in 2015. He hired John Fox and Nagy as head coaches during his tenure. Pace made some notable moves while he was in charge, including trading for Khalil Mack and trading up to select both Mitchell Trubisky and Justin Fields.
Chicago has traded away a lot of draft capital over the years, but a new coach and general manager will have a young quarterback in Fields to build around.
