The Chicago Bears have had yet another terrible season in the National Football League (NFL), putting veteran head coach John Fox on the hot seat and his job possibly in jeopardy.

The bears are 5-10 on the season and have a total record of 14-33 under Fox as their head coach, bringing their winning percentage at .298. This is Chicago's third-straight season with double digit losses.

Recently speaking to the Chicago Times, Fox said that he isn't worried too much about his future in Chicago (quotes via

"I don't worry about it. I've never had trouble getting employment in this league, and I'm not going to start worrying about it now," Fox said Monday, via the Chicago Sun Times.

There have been several reports from NFL Insiders that say Fox and his staff expect to be let go after this season, but Fox says that he's prepared for any outcome as this isn't his first rodeo:

"It's not my first rodeo, you know," Fox said. "I've been doing this for [29] years and [16] as a head coach, so this is par for the course in this league.

"I think there's a lot of different speculation every year, and this year is no different."

When Fox came into Chicago he had one of the oldest teams in the NFL on him. Now he has built up a team full of young and talented players, drafted a great young quarterback, and has established a decent defense this season.

While this is a great group of players that Fox has established over the years, he admitted that it certainly hasn't been easy:

"Has it been easy? I'd say no," Fox said when asked if the Bears were a bigger rebuild than he anticipated when signing.

"We've gone from the oldest roster in football to one of the younger ones. We've got a good, young, talented roster. We still have holes. But at least, to me, we're on a level playing field now."
