Reports: Bears retain Matt Eberflus, fire OC Luke Getsy

Head coach Matt Eberflus was retained for the 2024 season but his offensive coaching staff is getting a facelift, per multiple reports Wednesday.

Eberflus, 10-24 since being hired to replace Matt Nagy, parted with offensive coordinator Luke Getsy and quarterbacks coach Andrew Janocko. He’s also been operating without a defensive coordinator since Alan Williams resigned in September.

Hiring coordinators could be tricky for Eberflus because he has only two years remaining on his original four-year contract.

Eberflus called defensive plays for the balance of the season and Chicago ranked in the top six in most major categories over the final 10 games of the season.

Under Getsy, the Bears finished 28th in total offense in 2022 and 20th in 2023.

The change also factors into the quarterback situation. Justin Fields would be learning yet another offense in what sets up as a possible make-or-break year.

Speculation about Fields’ future is rampant. The Bears have the No. 1 pick in the 2024 draft and general manager Ryan Poles said before last year’s draft, when he swapped the No. 1 pick to the Carolina Panthers for two first-rounders and wide receiver DJ Moore, that this year’s first-round pick was important in the trade because it could be used on a franchise quarterback.
