Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy can't seem to catch a break these days. From his questionable play-calling on Sunday Night Football, to some alarming comments made by his coaches and players this week, it seems as though Nagy could use an early vacation.

According to sportsbook "Bet Online", that vacation may come sooner rather than later. The betting site has Nagy listed as the odds on favorite to be the first head coach fired this season.

To see a betting site make such a bold assumption this early in the season is alarming. While it shouldn't be taken as a sure bet, it certainly isn't the type of thing you want to see as a Bears fan. It should be noted that the Bears have never fired a head coach mid-season, meaning that it would take a special case to make history.
