John Fox is not expected to return as coach of the Chicago Bears after this season, league sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Sunday.
2018 draft position: Top-10 selection in the first round and seven overall picks, including two in the fourth round.
2018 projected salary cap space: $45.5 million
2018 starting quarterback: Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears used the second overall pick to draft Trubisky last April. He’s been Chicago’s starting quarterback since Week 5.
Key free agents: CB Prince Amukamara, CB Kyle Fuller, WR Kendall Wright
Bill Barnwell’s job grade: B+
— Jeff Dickerson
Chicago will finish last in the NFC North for the third consecutive season under Fox, who was hired by the Bears in January 2015 after a four-year stint as the Denver Broncos’ coach.
Fox coached the Broncos to four consecutive division titles and a Super Bowl appearance, but he failed to duplicate that success with the Bears, who haven’t had a winning season since 2012.
Entering Sunday’s regular-season finale, Fox is 14-33 with the Bears and owns a career record of 133-122 in 16 seasons with Chicago, Denver and the Carolina Panthers.
The Bears particularly struggled against their division rivals under Fox, going 3-15 against NFC North opponents over the last three seasons prior to Sunday’s game.
