Could The Bears Be Restructuring Front Office In 2022?

It’s expected the Chicago Bears will be going through a lot of changes this offseason, starting with head coach Matt Nagy.

Yahoo Sports reports that Nagy is likely gone after this year, if not sooner, but could there be other changes within the front office, which could include general manager Ryan Pace?

CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora reported that accomplished coaching agent Trace Armstrong discussed the possibility of taking a top management position with the Bears, according to his league sources, but the former Bears’ player said LaCanfora’s report was “simply not true.”

LaCanfora said Armstrong spoke to team officials last month, but Armstrong took to social media to clear the air.

“I have the utmost respect for the Chicago Bears organization, the McCaskey family and Ted Phillips,” Armstrong wrote. “However, any assertion that I have engaged in conversations with them about joining the club in any capacity is simply not true.”

LaCanfora’s report pointed out that the Bears are exploring restructuring the front office, as “ownership mulls sweeping coaching and front office changes.”

With one of those changes implementing a football guy, who would “oversee football operations with the coach and GM reporting to him.” Yahoo Sports reports that as things are now, the head coach and GM report to George McCaskey and Ted Phillips, two people who are not considered “football guys.”

Although things aren’t necessarily clear now, they will only become visible as we creep closer to the end of the regular season.

The Bears (4-8) face the Green Bay Packers (9-3) in Week 14 before facing the Minnesota Vikings (6-7) in Week 15.
