Reports: Lovie Smith Fired As Chicago Bears Coach

NFL.com is reporting that  Chicago Bears Coach Lovie Smith has been fired.

The Bears failed to make the playoffs despite starting the season 7-1. The team struggled to a 10-6 finish and lost out on the final playoff spot to the Minnesota Vikings.

The Bears have not made the playoffs in  five of the last six seasons, though Smith did get the Bears to the Super Bowl in 2006. In recent years the Bears offense has been inconsistent, despite trading two first round picks for quarterback Jay Cutler.

The Chicago Tribune noted that Smith had  gone through four offensive coordinators during his tenure.

Smith compiled an  80-63 record as head coach of the Chicago Bears since 2004, Yahoo! Sports reported.
