LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - The Chicago Bears have fired John Fox after a 5-11 season, ending one of the least successful coaching stints in team history.
    
The Bears announced the move Monday, one day after a loss at NFC North champion Minnesota.
    
Fox was 14-34 in his three years with Chicago, a .292 winning percentage that ranks as the second lowest for the Bears. Only Abe Gibron was worse - 11-30-1 (.274) from 1972-74.
    
Chicago has four consecutive losing seasons - each with 10 or more losses. The Bears haven't finished above .500 since they let Lovie Smith go following a 10-6 finish in 2012 and haven't been to the playoffs since 2010.
