As we’re approaching the end of the 2021 season, there’s expected to be a lot of change within the Chicago Bears organization this offseason.

At this point, the expectation is head coach Matt Nagy is gone at the end of the season. But there’s been reports about a potential front office restructure that involves general manager Ryan Pace and president Ted Phillips finding new roles.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport appeared on The Adam Schein Podcast, where he was asked about the GM situation in Chicago and whether Pace’s job is in jeopardy.

“As far as the GM goes? I have not heard that Ryan Pace is in trouble. Anything is possible. I’m not going to make any definitive statements because I simply don’t know, but I have not heard that Pace is in trouble. And I think Justin Fields being good, what (Pace) did to get him, the promise there? That probably helps him. I would say Matt Nagy is in trouble.”

This is in line with previous reports, including the Bears have been doing homework on potential GM replacements for Pace and possibly finding a new role for Pace within the organization. If that’s the direction they choose to go in.

While Nagy’s fate appears all but sealed — as even Rapoport indicated — Pace’s is less certain. But with less than a month left this season, it’ll become clear soon enough.
