1945 Chicago Bears season

The 1945 Chicago Bears season was their 26th regular season completed in the National Football League. The club posted a dismal 3–7 record under temporary co-coaches Hunk Anderson and Luke Johnsos. With the end of World War II, Halas would make his return to the coaching ranks next year so this was the end of the only co-coaching tenure in franchise history.
