During a recent Chicago playoff game between Cary-Grove and Lake Forest, Cary-Grove fans decided it would be fun to direct a ‘Fire Nagy’ chant at Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy’s son, who plays for Lake Forest.
On Tuesday, Cary-Grove High School issued an apology for the conduct of their fans.
“At the recent Cary-Grove vs. Lake Forest 6A high school football game played on Saturday, November 20, members of the Cary-Grove student body began a chant targeting the parent of one of the Lake Forest team members and his family,” the statement from Cary-Grove’s principal said. “On behalf of Cary-Grove High School, I want to assure our community that the chant was not acceptable nor appropriate and was immediately addressed by administration at the game. We also felt it was important to meet with our student superfans that lead our chants and cheers to talk about what happened and give them an opportunity to reflect and correct their actions.”
There are reports circulating that Nagy will be fired after Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day matchup vs. the Detroit Lions.
