Bears Part Ways with Head Coach John Fox

It didn’t take long into the New Year for the Bears to decide what to do with head coach John Fox, as today the team fired him after another tough season.

Fox lead the Bears for three seasons, but the team never reached the potential while Fox was head coach with the Carolina Panthers.

Fox led the Bears to a 6–10 record in his first season, only the second time in his career where he had double-digit losses. However, Fox finished his second season with the Bears with a 3-13 record, tied for the worst record for the Bears since the NFL changed to a 16-game season.

After a 1-3 start in 2017, Fox benched quarterback Mike Glennon in favor of rookie Mitchell Trubisky in Week 5.[16] The Bears finished the season 5-11. His overall record with the Bears is 14-34, which is the second lowest win percentage in franchise history.
