Local Sports: Chicago Bears Fire Head Coach Lovie Smith…

Posted on Dec 31 2012 - 10:12am by Tracy

The Chicago Bears fired coach Lovie Smith on Monday, NFL.com is reporting.  The Bears missed the playoffs for the fifth time in the last six seasons despite starting this season 7-1.


The Bears finished 10-6 but were denied a playoff spot when the Vikings beat the Packers on Sunday.

The 54-year-old Smith, who led the Bears to the Super Bowl after the 2006 season, was 81-63 over eight regular seasons and was 3-3 in the playoffs.

With Smith out, Jay Cutler is going to have to start over with another offensive coordinator. A defense full of players fit to Smith’s scheme may not fit well anymore.

Was that the best move for the Bears??
