The 1992 Chicago Bears season was their 73rd regular season completed in the National Football League (NFL). The Bears were looking to get back into the playoffs for a third straight year and improve on their 11–5 record, which was good enough for second place in the NFC Central, and to win their eighth division title in ten years. Although the Bears had a 4–3 record through seven games, they lost eight of their remaining nine (including six consecutively) and finished at 5–11. The Bears' poor record resulted in the termination of Mike Ditka as head coach after eleven seasons. Dave Wannstedt, who was serving as the Dallas Cowboys' defensive coordinator, was hired to take his place. Ditka was fired from coaching the Bears with a 106-62 record, playoff appearances in 7 out of 11 seasons since 1982 and a Super Bowl victory in 1985, with the defense considered the best of all time. He would return as a head coach in the NFL with the New Orleans Saints in 1997.
