Matt Nagy met with Bears ownership Tuesday before canceling the rest of the day’s meetings

If there was one word to describe the events that unfolded with the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, it is dysfunction. Then again, these would mean that you have to spend for these processes.

At the center of the chaos was head coach Matt Nagy, whose hot seat is about the hottest it can get. Following a report from Patch.com noting that Nagy was informed that he would be fired after Thursday’s game against the Detroit Lions, there were a number of players and coaches who had to question it to some degree.

Nagy denied the report, saying it was “not accurate” and that he never met with ownership, while players and coaches sang Nagy’s praises as part of what appeared to be injury control unfolding in Halas Hall.

But according to Brad Biggs from Chicago Tribune, Nagy met with the Bears’ ownership somewhere between the meeting with the media and before the team’s second review on Tuesday afternoon.

“While Nagy told the media during his press conference dinner, he was not scheduled to meet with his bosses this week – not surprising given the rapid turnaround for the Thanksgiving Day game – he told players after the review that he had a ‘productive’ “meeting with ownership, sources said.”

According to Biggs, Nagy also canceled the rest of Tuesday’s meetings after the review after telling players about his meeting with ownership, which was about “them moving forward.”

But he did not explain his status, which allegedly made some players angry that he did not address the report of his dismissal.

“A time between saying that and going to the Walter Payton Center for the second review, Nagy met with ownership, according to sources. These sources said Nagy told the players it was about going forward and that no one knows, what tomorrow will bring and they said he broke the team down on “family”.

“He did not shed any light on his status,” the sources said, angering some players for not addressing the report directly, less than 48 hours before the team will try to end a five-match losing streak against undefeated Lions (0-9- 1) in a nationally televised match. “

Where things stand at the moment, Nagy is still the Bears’ head coach. Whether that changes later in the week may well depend on the outcome of the Bears’ Thanksgiving game against the Lions.
