Report: Matt Nagy met with Bears ownership Tuesday before canceling rest of day’s meetings
If there was one word to describe the events that played out with the Chicago Bears on Tuesday, it is dysfunction. On the other hand, that's nothing new to this franchise.
At the center of the mayhem was head coach Matt Nagy, whose hot seat is pretty much the hottest it can get. There were a number of players and coaches who had to deal with issues to some degree, according to a report by Patch.com that found Nagy was sacked after Thursday's game against the Detroit Lions.
Nagy denied the report, saying it was "incorrect" and that he never came across property while players and coaches sang Nagy's praises as part of what appears to be damage control at Halas Hall.
But according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, Nagy met with Bears between the media meeting and before the team's second walkthrough on Tuesday afternoon.
"While Nagy told the media during his lunchtime press conference that he shouldn't be meeting with his bosses this week - unsurprisingly given the quick turnaround time for the Thanksgiving Day game - he told the players after the tour that he was a" productive " Had game. Meetings with owners, sources said. "
According to Biggs, Nagy also canceled the rest of the meetings on Tuesday after the walkthrough after telling players about his meeting with the owners to "move them forward".
But he didn't explain his status, which reportedly made some players angry for not bringing up the report of his sacking.
“Sometime between that statement and the way to the Walter Payton Center for the second tour, Nagy met with owners, according to sources. These sources said Nagy told the players that the point was to get ahead and that no one knows what tomorrow will bring, and they said he broke up the team because of "family".
"He hasn't shed light on his status, the sources said, which angered some players for not bringing up the report directly, less than 48 hours before the team will attempt to end a five-game losing streak against the team." Winless Lions (0-9-1) in a nationally televised game. "
Where it stands right now, Nagy is still the head coach of the Bears. That changes later this week may very well depend on the outcome of the Bears' Thanksgiving game against the Lions.
