Matt Nagy assumes he will end season with Chicago Bears

The coach does not know the plans of the franchise and if they have evaluated any replacement

Amid rumors about his job, the Chicago Bears coach, Matt nagy, said Monday that he is operating under the assumption that he will run his last two games.

The Bears have never fired a coach during the campaign, but a new rule of the NFL allows teams to begin interviewing candidates during the last two weeks of the regular season if the coach is no longer employed or has been notified that he will not continue for the following year. Nagy denied a report last month that he would be fired after the game of the Thanksgiving Day against the Detroit Lions.

“One thing that you can always evaluate is the effort of the players,” he said. “You never know [cuál será el resultado]. But you can always judge the effort. We saw it yesterday. … You value that. Indicate who the players are in this organization. They deserve that and they deserve to have the feeling of winning. It’s been a while. When you have a chance to win, you have to enjoy it. And for me, personally, I am very happy for the players. “

Also on Monday, Nagy announced that five players were returning from the reserve list / COVID-19– Wide receiver Allen Robinson, safety Tashaun Gipson, cornerback Jaylon Johnson, tight end Jesse James and running back Ryan Nall.
