Bulls Fans Chant ‘Fire Nagy’ at United Center

Matt Nagy has ‘reportedly’ lost the Bears’ locker room, but he has definitely lost the entire city of Chicago.

Monday night was not pretty for Bulls fans. The Indiana Pacers came to the United Center for the second leg of Chicago’s back-to-back. Both Alex Caruso and Nikola Vucevic were out of the lineup. By the start of the fourth quarter, the Bulls were down by more than 20. Billy Donovan opened up his bench, giving young players some developmental time. While the result was disappointing, the 109-77 loss could be rationalized by a depleted roster playing the second game in as many days after overachieving on a tough West Coast road trip.

During the blowout, Bulls fans turned their pain to another Chicago franchise: the Bears. “Fire Nagy” chants began to ripple through the crowd until nearly the whole place was in unison.

Bad News Bears

The Bears have endured an extremely underwhelming season so far. Their latest loss was a 16-13 sleeper against the Ravens. The Bears had a prime opportunity to pick up a win with MVP candidate Lamar Jackson out due to an illness. After Justin Fields exited with a rib injury, Andy Dalton threw for two second-half touchdowns to give the Bears a chance to win.

But late in the fourth quarter, Matt Nagy mismanaged the game to let the Ravens get one more scoring drive before time ran out. Alas, the “Fire Nagy” chants broke out at Soldier Field.

Fans are hoping Nagy will become the first Bears’ coach to be fired mid-season. Outside of his first year as Bears’ head coach, he has not coached the team to more than eight wins. The Bears have fired coaches under less egregious circumstances, just ask Lovie Smith.

There are even reports indicating the whole locker room has turned on Nagy. And now that people are calling for his job at a basketball game, it seems the entire city has turned on Nagy.

Chicago has had bad coaches through the years, such as Jim Boylen, Jeremy Colliton, and Marc Trestman, but never have we seen an entire arena attending an unrelated sporting event chanting for the firing of a coach.

The next dose of Bears disappointment is just around the corner on Thanksgiving Day in Detroit. Let’s hope it’s one of Matt Nagy’s last games on the sidelines.
