John Fox finished dead last in the NFC North in each of his three seasons as the Chicago Bears head coach, earning just 14 wins to 34 losses. Under Fox, the Bears were one of the worst teams in the NFL, compiling a .292 winning percentage (30th in the league since 2015), scoring 18.3 points per game (T-30th), allowing 23.3 points per game (T-21st), and owning a minus-24 turnover differential (31st). Despite the losses and negative stats, Fox helped clean up the mess left behind by Marc Trestman. The veteran coach told NBC Sports Chicago he believes the Bears are close to a turnaround and wishes he could have stuck around to see it. "It would've been nice to see it through," Fox said. "That's kind of a bitter pill but you sort things out and move forward. "I do think it's closer than people think. We inherited a mess ... but I felt we were on the brink at the end. I think that [Halas Hall] building is definitely different; they feel it. I do think that it was a positive."
