Bears head coach Matt Nagy said “magic words” to draw unsportsmanlike penalty

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy drew a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct for his reaction with officials to a play late in the first quarter of Monday night’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Once Nagy saw the replay of the play in question, he became very animated on the sidelines in expressing his anger to back judge Terrence Miles. At the end of the back-and-forth, Nagy shouted and turned to walk away as Miles delivered the flag for unsportsmanlike conduct on Nagy.

In a pool report after the game, head referee Scott Novak said that Nagy chose some of the few words you can’t say to an official to draw the flag. “So, if he just ends up going in that direction and it gets to where we need to throw a flag, we throw it.”

The penalty on Nagy moved the Vikings to the Chicago 12-yard line.
