Bears hire Matt Nagy as new head coach

(CHICAGO) – The Chicago Bears named Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as their new head coach, the team announced Monday. Nagy, 39, replaces John Fox, who was fired after posting a 14-34 record in three seasons. The Bears interviewed five candidates before meeting with Nagy on Sunday, the day after the Chiefs' playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans. Nagy spent the last 10 seasons coaching under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City. Reid promoted Nagy to Chiefs offensive coordinator this year and officially relinquished playcalling duties to the young assistant late in 2017. Nagy joins Marc Trestman (2013-14) as the only Bears head coach since the merger to have previously worked as an offensive coordinator. Since 2015, the Bears' offense is ranked tied for 30th in points per game (18.3). Prior to 2016, Nagy spent three seasons as Kansas City's quarterbacks coach and worked closely with veteran Alex Smith, who made his first Pro Bowl in 2013. Nagy will be charged with developing Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, whom general manager Ryan Pace moved up one spot to draft second overall last spring. Before settling on Nagy, the Bears interviewed New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards and Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. The Bears will introduce Nagy at a news conference on Tuesday.
