LAKE FOREST – Just a year-and-a-half into his tenure and already it looks like there could be another coaching controversy as the 2016 season winds down.

With the Bears’ floundering toward a third-consecutive losing season, the Bears have already begun to evaluate head coach John Fox’s future with the team according to a report today from the NFL Network.

Reporter Ian Rapoport, citing several sources, said that the team is doing a full look at the team after a dismal 1-6 start to the season. He also said that Fox’s future with the team beyond 2016 is “Shaky” but that general manager Ryan Pace is safe beyond this season.

Fox has a 7-16 record in his first two years with the Bears. He signed a four-year deal in January of 2015 after being let go as the head coach of the Denver Broncos.
