Bears return-man Devin Hester blamed the media and fans for the firing of head coach Lovie Smith.
“We already knew what the news was,” Hester said while speaking to reporters. “Just hearing it from him. The media, the false fans, you all got what you all wanted. Majority of you all wanted him out. As players, we wanted him in. I guess the false fans outruled us. I thought he was a great coach, probably one of the best coaches I have ever been around. He brought me in.”
Hester went on to say that he was going home and was not concerned with the Bears search for a new head coach.
