MONSTER’S MASH: With speculation all around, the Bears’ coaches continue

LAKE FOREST – It’s very easy to forget that speculation for one is also for many others on a particular NFL coaching staff.

That would be the case for the Bears’ assistant coaches this week, as it looks like Matt Nagy will be fired as head coach after the team’s season finale against the Vikings on Sunday. If he leaves, it’s likely that a number of Bears’ assistant coaches will also be looking for new jobs.

It could include defensive coordinator Sean Desai, who has been with the franchise since 2013, and special teams coordinator Chris Tabor, who came to Chicago with Nagy in 2018.

They both talked about their future with Nagy and how they are approaching this past week in this issue of “Monster’s Mash” on “The 9-Yard Line” on WGN News Now.

You can see their comments in the video above.


He’s already got the Bears’ record for layoffs in a season after beating Mike Glennon down for his 18th last Sunday against the Giants, but another achievement is possible for Robert Quinn.

If he can get 1 1/2 sacks against the Vikings on Sunday, the outside linebacker would set a personal high for sacks in a season. He was 19 while a member of the Rams in the 2013 season.


The number of times the Bears have finished their season against the Vikings in Minneapolis the last eight seasons. They had victories in 2018 and 2019.
