Joel Quenneville is handling his recent dismissal quite well.
The former Blackhawks coach and noted Bears fan was spotted tailgating with his fellow Chicago fans ahead of the team’s primetime matchup with the Vikings on Sunday night.

The Blackhawks fired Quenneville after a 6-6-3 start to the season and named Jeremy Colliton as his replacement earlier this month.
With 890 wins, Quenneville, 60, is the second-winningest coach in NHL history behind Scotty Bowman. Quenneville joined the Blackhawks in 2008, winning three Stanley Cups and helping Chicago make the playoffs every season during his tenure with the exception of last season.
Colliton, 33, has gone 2-2-2 since taking over.
