What Does The Fox Say?

The Chicago Bears didn’t live up the hype in the 2014 season, finishing last in their division (5-11). Major changes were definitely coming and they did. The Bears introduced John Fox as the new head coach on January 19th, 2015.

Fox was head coach for the Denver Broncos from 2011 to 2014 and was also head coach of the Carolina Panthers from 2002 to 2010. John Fox is a perfect fit for the Chicago Bears with 13 years of coaching experience under his belt. The Bears never hire coaches with previous NFL head coaching experience, which says a lot. John’s career head coaching record is 119-89 with a playoff mark of 8-6, but he was the man in charge in Denver when the Broncos made it to four straight playoff berths. He’s also been to two Super Bowls; the Bears haven’t been to the Super Bowl since 2006. John also has a great defensive background, which should help the team out a lot after a horrible season.

Many Bears players respect Fox and are excited about him being their new head coach. John Fox is very much respected in the NFL and has winning in his blood. Fox said his coaching style is honest, he’s not afraid or intimidated to tell people the truth. This is exactly what the Chicago Bears need. “I can’t make you any promises except I’m going to give you everything I’ve got. That trophy looks pretty lonely out there”, Fox said during this introductory press conference.

Fox said he was planning on getting to know Jay during his press conference in January. We will see what John Fox and the Bears organization do this off-season, but the John Fox hire is a step in the right direction for this team. Let’s bring on the 2015 season and a new beginning of the Chicago Bears.
