The Chicago Bears have relived GM Jerry Angelo of his duties after 11 years on the job.

During his tenure the Bears won four division titles and reached the Super Bowl.

However, the team also crumbled down the stretch this season after injures to quarterback Jay Cutler and Matt Forte, while having their name dragged through the mud a bit following a drug scandal involving wide receiver Sam Hurd.

Chicago released a statement saying that CEO Ted Phillip informed Angelo of his decision. The team also announced via their website that Lovie Smith will remain as coach.

The Bears started the year 7-3 before season ending injuries to Cutler and Forte decimated the roster, leading to a five-game losing streak.

In total Chicago finished the season with seven starters on injured reserve, including five on offense. Angelo also caught some heat for the front office’s inability to populate the roster with capable backups.
