Multiple reports have Fox ready to be handed a pink slip and Fox already to have accepted his fate. NFL Insider Ian Rapaport recently stated on the NFL Network that Bears President Ted Phillips has already been making calls in regards to potential head coach's to replace Fox. Former Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi was a consultant three years ago when the Bears hired Fox despite Ryan Pace having no prior experience with him.
