The Chicago Bears are going to hit the re-set button tomorrow. According to sources, the Bears are expected to fire GM Phil Emery and head coach Marc Trestman.

Their last game will be today in Minnesota against the Vikings. They’re currently 5-10, and could either finish with a 6-10 or 5-11 mark.

In two seasons, he’s 13-18 in his two years after returning to the NFL from the Canadian Football League.

During his tenure with the Montreal Alouettes, Trestman went 59-31 with 4 Division Championship. He also won two Grey Cups in 2009 and 2010. (The Grey Cup is the CFL’s Super Bowl)

Emery has been the Bears GM since 2012. He was responsible for the firing of long-time head coach Lovie Smith and then signing quarterback Jay Cutler to a long-term contract.

There were reports that the team is having buyers remorse over Cutler’s deal with his struggles this season, the first year of his new deal.

With a new GM coming in, he’s going to have to decide what to do with Cutler. The Vanderbilt grad has been linked to the Tennessee Titans and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Both teams desperately need a quarterback this off-season, as their two quarterbacks haven’t worked out this year. In addition, the Bucs would have the top pick in the 2015 NFL draft if they lose today.

However, if the Bucs win a game for the first time since November 16th against the Washington Redskins, the pick will go to the Titans.
