The Chicago Bears decided to clean house when they fired general manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy.
Pace had been with the team since 2015 while Nagy joined in 2018.
They got the pink slip after the team finished the 2021 season at 6-11.
Former Bears offensive lineman Ryan Poles and former Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus took over fror Pace and Nagy, respectively.
However, it didn’t take long before the former think tank in the Windy City found new jobs around the NFL.

Pro Football Focus’ Ari Meirov tweeted that Pace became the new senior personnel executive for the Atlanta Falcons.
Meanwhile, Nagy rejoined Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs as a senior assistant and quarterbacks coach.
Aside from his stint with the Bears, Nagy has been a part of Reid’s staff since he started his coaching journey as a coaching intern for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008.
Since then, he went up the ranks to become an offensive quality control coach, quarterbacks coach, and offensive coordinator.
He had initial success with the Bears, leading them to a 12-4 record and the NFC North title in 2018.
Unfortunately, he had consecutive 8-8 campaigns before his final season in Chicago.
Pace To Help In Falcons’ Resurgence
Meanwhile, Pace will be reporting to current Falcons general manager Harry Fontenot as a senior personnel executive.
Pace had a checkered legacy during his tenure in Chicago.
Pace will help in bringing young talent that will eventually carry the team back to the playoffs.
