The Chicago Bears fired head coach Matt Nagy and longtime general manager Ryan Pace, the team announced Monday.

Nagy leaves Chicago with a 34-31 record and two playoff appearances in four years. Meanwhile, Pace exits with a 48-65 mark after his fourth losing season in seven campaigns at the helm.

The 43-year-old Nagy entered the 2021 season on the hot seat after consecutive 8-8 campaigns. He also suffered losses in the wild-card round in 2018 and 2020.

Nagy, the former offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs, was brought to Chicago to mentor Mitchell Trubisky and revitalize the team's long-stagnant offense.

However, the offense never finished higher than 22nd in points scored or 24th in yards gained during the last three seasons.

Nagy and Pace were fired less than a year after being allowed to make a second blockbuster move up in the draft for another highly touted quarterback in Justin Fields.

But Fields struggled in his first season and the head coach received significant criticism for failing to adapt his scheme to the dual-threat rookie.
