Bears fire GM Jerry Angelo

The Chicago Bears fired general manager Jerry Angelo on Tuesday.

Angelo was under contract through 2013, but the team decided change is needed after finishing 8-8, the fourth time in five seasons the franchise has not reached the playoffs.

His dismissal comes less than a year after the Bears hosted the 2010 NFC Championship Game.

Chicago won three division titles and reached Super Bowl XLI -- in which the Bears fell to Indianapolis to end the 2006 season -- under Angelo, who joined the team prior to the 2001 campaign.
