NFL fans have spent months hearing about Matt Nagy’s impending firing.
First, he was supposed to be gone after the Thanksgiving game.
But he is still around and could now actually be facing his final game this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
Both head coaches could be fired after that matchup.
Nagy was again asked about his status and made it clear he doesn’t think he is going anywhere.
#Bears coach Matt Nagy said he hasn't been told that Sunday's game will be his last with the team.
"I'm a pretty good source to ask," he said.

Nagy is not going to outright say he expects to be let go.
But his response has fans reacting in some strong ways on social media.
So for the 2nd time in less than 2 months, some "insider" lied about Matt Nagy being told he will be fired after the next game. STOP TEASING BEARS FANS!

A Strong Reaction To Nagy’s Personal Update
The Chicago Bears head coach has been an easy target for fans all season.
He got his wish in getting rid of Mitchell Trubisky and was given Justin Fields.
Yet he seemed to like the idea of starting Andy Dalton and when Fields did get on the field, he was limited.
Yea I'm gonna need Matt Nagy spelling out "I have been fired by the Chicago Bears and am no longer their head football coach" before I get excited about some "reports" https://t.co/EU4atgYxIZ

Matt Nagy taking sole credit for beating the Seahawks and Giants because of how he’s handled reports that he’s a terrible coach and is going to get fired. I don’t know if I could stand this clown any less #Bears

Matt Nagy hasn’t been told he’s getting fired cuz the dude who would tell him is prolly getting the boot too, this isn’t rocket science

Bears ownership has a big decision to make on Monday.
Not only is Nagy’s job in danger, but GM Ryan Pace could be on his way out too.
That may explain why the organization has remained patient in this process with Nagy.
Bigger changes may be coming.

Matt Nagy basically telling reporters, if you want to know if he is going to be fired to just call him and ask…

Things we've known for at least 6 weeks:
Matt Nagy will be fired.
Ryan Pace may or may not stay on staff.
Why y'all keep reporting the same thing over and over and over again????? Let it play out, and let's talk then.

The constant NFL news cycle means every Bears loss only increases the focus on Nagy and his job security.
The Bears are just a unique organization that has never fired a head coach during the season.
But the media and fans need something to talk about and Nagy is always an easy topic.
5 more days until Matt Nagy is officially fired.

This is an awful spot for Bears fans to be in.
Nagy showed up with so much promise and it has all been downhill from there.
The hope now is that the right person can be brought in to work with Fields and let him earn a second contract in town.
The Trubisky situation cannot happen again unless the Bears want to be repeating this identical process a few years from now.
