Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo is out of a job.

Multiple media outlets reported that Angelo will not return to the team after 11 years on the job.

It is unclear whether Angelo decided to retire or was fired by the club. His departure also calls into question the future of head coach Lovie Smith.

The Bears (8-8) staggered to the finish line after quarterback Jay Cutler suffered a broken thumb on his throwing hand.

Chicago lost four consecutive games with backup Caleb Hanie at quarterback, forcing the team to play Josh McCown for the final two games.

McCown had not started an NFL game since 2007 and was coaching high school football when he was signed in November.

The Bears went to the NFC Championship Game last season, losing to eventual Super Bowl champion Green Bay, and advanced to the Super Bowl after the 2006 season.
