Chants of “Fire Nagy” could be heard all over Chicago, from the Soldiers Field to Matt Nagy’s son Matt Nagy’s soccer games.
The Bears have now lost five games in a row and fans are very disappointed, to say the least. They have aimed their anger at the 43-year-old head coach, who has found himself in the middle of much of this season’s Bears-related drama.
After Sunday’s 16-13 loss to Raven, the Battlefield crowd erupted in chants of “Fire Nagy.” Then on Monday night in the Bulls vs. Pacers at the United Center, chants of “Fire Nagy” can be heard. Then on Tuesday, video emerged showing chants of “Fire Nagy” taking over his son’s own soccer game on Saturday night.
Nagy’s son plays football for Lake Forest High School in suburban Chicago. Lake Forest took on Cary-Grove High School on Saturday, and Cary-Grove claimed a resounding victory, which caused the Cary-Grove student body to start shouting “Fire Nagy.”
Cary-Grove Principal Neil Lesinski posted an apology on Twitter Tuesday morning. His full statement:
It seems that the chants of “Fire Nagy” will get nowhere if the Bears continue to lose. They had a chance to win their fourth of the season on Thanksgiving when they took on the Lions 0-9-1.
On Tuesday, rumors circulated that Nagy’s last game as coach would be against the Lions on Thursday. Nagy addressed these rumors to the media on Tuesday, claiming that they “incorrect.”
