This time, the source is former NFL quarterback and CBS broadcaster Boomer Esiason said Nagy has already been told he won’t be back. Nagy was quick to deny the report vehemently.READ MORE: Bears Hire Colts Defensive Coordinator Matt Eberflus As New Head Coach
“I haven’t been told anything, and I’m a pretty good source to ask, so I think you’re doing a good job asking me. I would say that anybody that has a report that is going to talk to somebody who talked to somebody who talked to somebody, it’s probably best to call me up and ask me. I’ll tell you the truth.

Nagy was asked whether he has given any thought to whether the game on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings might be his final game with the Bears.

It would be surprising if Nagy is back after a losing season. But the bigger question is whether General Manager Ryan Pace will pick the head coach or if someone new makes that decision.
