Bears hire Chiefs OC Nagy as head coach

The Chicago Bears hired former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as the team's head coach Monday, a move that is expected to have a positive impact on QB Mitchell Trubisky and the offense.

He followed Reid to Kansas City in 2013, becoming the Chiefs' quarterbacks coach before he was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2016.

Nagy, 39, becomes the 16th head coach in Bears history and replaces John Fox, who compiled a 14-34 record in his three-year tenure.

According to Jahns, Nagy interviewed with Bears GM Ryan Pace Sunday, just one day after the Chiefs lost 22-21 to the Tennessee Titans at Arrowhead Stadium.

Nagy also served as an assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles from 2008-2012 on the staff of Chiefs coach Andy Reid during his time there. He did not call plays until late this season, but drew praise for his work with Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith.

Kansas City was sixth in the National Football League in points with 25.9 a game and fifth in total offense with 375.4 yards a game this past season. His contract is up on Tuesday, and the Bears have reportedly been interested in retaining him in his position.
