Although the two men continued to work together, the relationship continued to deteriorate and with the Bears trailing by three touchdowns in a late season Monday night game against the Miami Dolphins that resulted in the team's only loss, Ryan finally snapped after Ditka, as he recounted in for NFL Network , told him that the defensive scheme was not working.

The two began throwing punches at each other and had to be separated, and Ditka said that the relationship at that point became unsalvageable. In an unusual gesture, following the Bears Super Bowl victory, the players carried both Ryan and Ditka off the field. Buddy Ryan left in to become the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles.

When asked if he was happy Ryan was gone, Ditka replied he was not happy, but "elated". In , , and , the Bears won the Central Division title and earned three home playoff games. The first of those years saw the Bears finish the regular season with a 14—2 record to tie the New York Giants for the best in the entire league.

However, the Bears were upset by the Washington Redskins in their first playoff game. The next year, the Bears finished second in the NFC with an 11—4 record, but were again upended by the Redskins en route to that team's second Super Bowl victory of the decade.

The Bears finished 12—4 in and got homefield advantage, and defeated Ryan's Eagles in the Fog Bowl in their first game. Ditka suffered a heart attack during the season and was expected to miss much of the season, but was on the sidelines as an "advisor" the next week and back in full charge the week after. The Bears started 4—0 in , but a series of last-second losses eventually led to a complete meltdown at the end of the season as the Bears finished 6— The Bears rallied to win a weak Central Division in and make the playoffs as a wild card in , but were eliminated convincingly in the early rounds.

After dropping to 5—11 in the season , the Bears fired Ditka. His wins are the second-most in Bears history, behind only Halas. On December 9, , Ditka's Bears jersey number, 89, was retired in a halftime ceremony during a Monday Night Football game in Chicago as the Bears hosted the Dallas Cowboys, for whom Ditka also played and worked as an assistant coach under the late Tom Landry.

In , Ditka was hired as head coach by the New Orleans Saints. After finishing his first two seasons with identical 6—10 marks, Ditka was roundly criticized for the trading of all of the team's draft picks plus their first round draft pick in to the Washington Redskins to move up in the draft and select Texas RB Ricky Williams Washington would later use the picks to select future Pro Bowlers Champ Bailey , Jon Jansen , and LaVar Arrington.

The trade was further mocked because of a magazine cover in which Ditka posed with Williams, who was wearing a wedding dress. The season proved to be the worst of Ditka's coaching career and his frustrations showed in the local media. After a late season practice with the team sitting at 2—7, Ditka was very abrupt and dismissive of reporters whom he felt were asking him stupid questions and was asked by one of them why he was in such a bad mood. Ditka responded by asking the reporter, "what do you care?

The low point of the season came three weeks later in a loss to the Falcons which was the Saints' tenth in eleven weeks. Ditka came into the postgame press conference appearing emotionally exhausted and said he felt the Saints would be better off hiring someone else to coach the team. Ditka claimed he "didn't have it anymore", and said to the reporters that "God puts people in places for reasons, and he probably put me here to be humbled.

When asked if he believed the team quit on him, Ditka said that he did not believe that, saying that it was his responsibility to have the team ready to play and that he had "failed" in that role. After a few more questions, Ditka walked away from the reporters and called the whole exercise "silly". Ditka was fired at the end of the year, along with team general manager Bill Kuharich and his entire coaching staff. The Saints finished at 3—13 for the second time in four years and in last place for the third time in five years.

The team's last victory came on Christmas Eve against the playoff contending Dallas Cowboys in their home finale; the Saints upset the Cowboys behind Jake Delhomme , who would later become a Pro Bowler. Over a total of 14 seasons as a head coach, Ditka amassed a regular-season record of —95 and a postseason record of 6—6.

In January , Ditka used the Super Bowl return of the Chicago Bears as a platform to promote efforts by many early NFL players trying to raise support for former NFL players in need of money and medical assistance; he is a key member in the Gridiron Greats.

Angry at the wealthy NFL for ignoring the players who helped to create the league, Ditka and other former players have since been attempting to raise funds, in the words of Hall of Famer Joe DeLamielleure , "for guys who made this league and built it on their backs, their knees, their legs and now they're all broken down and they can't even get a decent pension.
