John Fox's run in the Windy City is over.
The Chicago Bears fired Fox on Monday after the team finished in the NFC North cellar for the third straight season under his guidance, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Fox and the Bears finished the season at 5-11 Sunday following a 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Over the course of his 16-year coaching career, Fox had endured multiple digit losses in a season only once before coming to Chicago, where he filed to bring the Bears out of their seven-year postseason hibernation.
Ian Rapoport reported the team will look for an offensive mind to work with QB Mitch Trubisky. DC Vic Fangio could be an option as well, according to Rapoport.
