The “Fire Nagy” chants can be heard all over Chicago, from Soldier Field all the way to Matt Nagy’s son’s football games.
The Bears have now lost five straight games, and fans are frustrated, to say the least. They have aimed their anger at the 43-year-old head coach, who has found himself in the middle of the majority of Bears-related drama this season.
After Sunday’s 16-13 loss to the Ravens, the Soldier Field crowd broke out into “Fire Nagy” chants. Then, on Monday night at the Bulls vs. Pacers game at the United Center, “Fire Nagy” chants could be heard. Then, on Tuesday, video surfaced showing that “Fire Nagy” chants took over his own son’s football game on Saturday night.
Nagy’s son plays football for Lake Forest High School in a Chicago suburb. Lake Forest played Cary-Grove High School on Saturday, and Cary-Grove captured a blowout victory, which prompted the Cary-Grove student section to start yelling “Fire Nagy.”
Cary-Grove principal Neil Lesinski posted an apology on Twitter on Tuesday morning. His full statement:
It doesn’t seem like the “Fire Nagy” chants will be going anywhere if the Bears continue to lose. They have a chance to get their fourth win of the season on Thanksgiving when they play the 0-9-1 Lions.
On Tuesday, there was a rumor circulating that Nagy’s last game as coach would be against the Lions on Thursday. Nagy addressed these rumors with the media on Tuesday, claiming that they are “not accurate.”
