Former Bears’ Great Dan Hampton Takes a Shot at Former Coach John Fox

The Bears’ defensive line roundtable was the most passionate of Saturday’s events, with all five participants firing up the crowd at the Bears 100 Weekend Celebration, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive lineman Dan Hampton wound up having the last word before the roundtable ran out of time.

When someone mentioned new head coach Matt Nagy, Hampton took a shot at the man he replaced.

“Thank God John Fox’s ass is out of town,” he said. “Thank God.” Fox, who led both the Panthers and Broncos to the Super Bowl, went 14-34 in three seasons before the Bears fired him after the 2017 season.

    It’s not surprising that Hampton has strong feelings about Fox. Dan’s always been a straight-shooter, and could be opinionated, though it’d be great to hear the unvarnished truth as to why he feels so strongly against Fox.
