Bears hire former Chiefs OC Matt Nagy as next head coach

According to Chicago Sun-Times reporter Adam Jahns, Kansas City offensive coordinator Matt Nagy will be named the new head coach of the Chicago Bears.

It's no surprise that the Bears chose to go with Nagy, as all indications were that they were looking for an offensive-minded coach who can help develop Mitchell Trubisky. He followed Reid to Kansas City in 2013, becoming the Chiefs' quarterbacks coach before he was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2016.

It will now by Nagy's job to develop Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the No. 2 pick in last year's draft. The Bears met with Nagy in Kansas City on Sunday. The hiring comes after Pace interviewed New England Offensive Coordinator Josh McDaniels, Minnesota Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur, Minnesota Defensive Coordinator George Edwards, Bears Defensive Coordinator Vic Fangio, and Eagles Quarterbacks Coach John DeFilippo. The Bears are just 14-34 record in the past three years for a.292 winning percentage that ranks as the second-lowest in their history.

Fox was sacked last week after posting a 5-11 record on the season.
