The Chicago Bears have officially hired John Fox as their new head coach. Fox comes to the Windy City just days after he mutually parted ways with the Denver Broncos.

It has been a worst-kept secret that Fox would take this job. New Bears GM Ryan Pace was taking his time, but the deal is expected to be done this weekend.

In addition, his team’s won the NFC Championship in 2003 and the AFC Championship in 2013. Both teams lost in the Super Bowl.
