Bears coach John Fox has reportedly ‘accepted his fate’

Chicago Bears coach John Fox has managed just 12 wins in three seasons at the helm in the Windy City against 32 losses and the prevailing sentiment is that 2017 could be his last season in charge.

However, Fox has reportedly “accepted his fate” according to a report from NFL Network’s Mike Garoppolo in conjunction with a report from Ian Rapoport that several Bears coaches are under the impression that things won’t end well for Fox in Chicago.

The Bears were always under the impression that the franchise required a complete rebuild when Fox took over in 2015, but the backslide from bad to worse during his tenure appears to have forced general manager Ryan Pace’s hand.

Chicago was in position to get into the NFC playoff race when they moved to 3-4 after a win against the Carolina Panthers, but consecutive losses to the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers — who they were favored against at home — sandwiched around their bye began a five-game losing streak. And that’s when things  really began to sour or Fox.

The Bears are 30th in the NFL in scoring offense and dead-last in total offense. And Fox’s inability to field a competent offense is squandering a solid effort from coordinator Vic Fangio’s defense for a second-straight season.
