Fired Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville tailgates with Bears fans before Vikings game


The Chicago Blackhawks fired longtime coach Joel Quenneville two weeks ago, but he doesn’t seem to be taking his dismissal too hard.

Coach Q is a noted Bears fan, and he was out tailgating with his fellow fans ahead of Chicago’s prime-time matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.

Quenneville, the NHL’s second-winningest coach all-time, went 452-249-96 over parts of 11 seasons leading the Blackhawks. He guided the team to three Stanley Cup championships, in 2010 – what was then the franchise’s first title since 1961 – 2013 and 2015. The 2017-18 season was the only year he missed the playoffs with the team.
