I would be heated if this happened to me while I was watching my son play ball.
With that said, since it didn’t happen to me, I have to admit this is quite hilarious. There are reports Nagy is going to be fired after the Thanksgiving game, win or lose.
Maybe the kids got the scoop from Adam Schefter or something.
An Illinois high school has just apologized to Matt Nagy … after its football team’s fans aimed a “Fire Nagy” chant at the Bears coach during its game on Saturday.
The Chicago headman was watching his son play for Lake Forest in its game against Cary Grove … when in the second quarter, a “Fire Nagy” chant broke out from Cary Grove’s section.
Video from the scene shows the synchronized shouts were loud — and frequent — and Nagy no doubt heard them all.
This isn’t the first time this has happened to Nagy.
A Fire Nagy chant broke out at the Bulls game recently.
Here is a portion of what the Principal of the school had to say.
“As the school principal,” Lesinski said, “I want to apologize to the Lake Forest student-athlete and his family for the disrespectful chant.”
“We hope to learn from this situation,” Lesinski added, “and we have taken steps to ensure this does not happen again.”
I am not sure how they can stop the kids from chanting. It wasn’t like it was a racial slur, was it mean? Yes, but I am not sure you can enforce a rule that says you can’t chant a coach can’t be fired.
As far as his actual firing, Mark Konkol, who previously worked for the Chicago Sun-Times, says Nagy already has his bags packed.
For disgruntled Bears fans looking for something to be thankful for after five straight losses, this is it.
Matt Nagy will coach his last game for the Bears on Thanksgiving in Detroit, a top source with knowledge of the decision told Patch.
Nagy was informed of his pending post-Turkey Day termination on Monday, the source said.
Please don’t feel too bad for Nagy. He is rich.
Flip the pages for the chants and the apology.
