Nagy's fate with the Bears seemed sealed for several weeks, so his dismissal wasn’t considered a surprise. After digesting the end of his run in Chicago, Nagy joined 610 Sports Radio in Kansas City on Friday and expressed his hope to learn from his experience.

“I had four great years there,” Nagy said. “Being able to learn from different experiences, whether it’s the silo of players and coaches, whether it’s the roster construction, whether it’s the media side and how to deal with the media on good days and bad days, how to deal with ownership, relationships and conversations you have behind closed doors with guys. For me, there’s just so much every day that you learn.

“I had a great time there in Chicago. I’m going to use every bit of it, every experience for me to make me better, to learn where I went wrong and help myself for maybe another opportunity. But at the same time, just so appreciative of everybody there in Chicago.”

Nagy was 34-31 in the regular seasons and 0-2 in the playoffs in his four-year tenure in Chicago. The Bears fired him after going 6-11 this past season.
