Bears make decision on offensive coordinator Luke Getsy

by - Senior Editor -

Changes are coming in 2024.

The Chicago Bears have fired offensive coordinator Luke Getsy according to multiple reports on Wednesday. The team had extensive meetings on Monday and Tuesday and decided to go in a new direction offensively.

Getsy lasted only two years in Chicago after having two stints with the Packers (2014-2021 and 2019-2021).

Reportedly, quarterback coach Andrew Janocko and receivers coach Tyke Tolbert have also been let go as the Bears are going for a fresh perspective for their offense in 2024.

The Bears failed to score a touchdown in the season-finale against their rival Packers. The Bears ranked 20th in the league in total offense, averaging 323.2 yards per contest this season.

“At the end of last year, we felt like we were doing a lot of really good things and our process was good, our people were good, the type of people we had in the building,” Getsy said after the loss to the Packers. “To be able to go through anything we’ve gone through and do what we’re doing and following the leadership of Ryan (Poles) and Flus, we have the right type of people in the building.

“It’s just really important that we get better each and every day. No matter what it looks like sometimes to the outside world, when you’re on the inside, you really know if it is or isn’t. I think the guys in the room, they all feel it, they know it, they’re excited about what’s to come. And we can say that we’ve continued to do that.”

The Bears averaged 21.2 points per game in the 2023 season which was 18th in the NFL.

The Bears will be looking for two new coordinators this offseason.

It appears that Bears head coach Matt Eberflus is safe and will return for his third season for the Bears in 2024 despite a 10-24 record in two seasons.
