The Chicago Bears are 5-9 so far this season with two games to go against the Detroit Lions (10-4) and Minnesota Vikings (6-8). The squad is eliminated from playoff contention. They are currently in a three-game losing streak and have lost six of their last eight games to bow out from the playoff race. The Bears started the season at 3-3 with hopes that they’d be able to compete for the NFC North. The turnaround never happened as rivals Green Bay Packers and Vikings went on good runs to come out as division contenders while the Bears became the bottom-feeders.

Chicago is one of the worst defensive teams in the league allowing 272.2 passing yards to opponents, ranked 31st in the league. They also have one of the worst running games in the NFL, rushing for just 91.3 yards per game or 26th overall.

The news of the firing comes after the Bears’ embarrassing 31-15 loss to the New Orleans Saints on primetime NFL Monday Night Football. Before joining Chicago, Trestman was the coach of the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League (CFL) from 2008 to 2012.
