When it comes to wins and losses, Eberflus has been the worst coach in Chicago Bears history for much of his tenure. He was hired in 2022 and proceeded to go 3-14 in his first season coaching the team. Things didn’t look any better to start the 2023 season, where the Bears got off to a 0-4 start with turmoil on the coaching staff that led to the dismissal of defensive coordinator Alan Williams.
