Matt Nagy, 39, the former Chiefs offensive coordinator will be introduced on Tuesday as the Chicago Bears 16th head coach in franchise history. Nagy interviewed with the Bears on Sunday following the Chiefs 22-21 loss to Tennessee the day before. Nagy was one of six who interviewed for the job vacated after John Fox was fired.
Nagy who helped develop Patrick Mahomes, selected 10th overall, will be responsible for developing Mitch Trubisky. He was chosen second overall by the Bears in the 2017 Draft.
Nagy helped develop an offensive game plan that delivered 4,000+ passing yards from Alex Smith, 1,000+ rushing yards from rookie running back Kareem Hunt and 1,000+ receiving seasons from wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce. The Chiefs were just the second team in NFL history (1981 San Diego Charger) to accomplish that feat.
Nagy spent the last five seasons with the Chiefs and was the offensive coordinator this season, taking over play-calling duties from Reid last month. He was co-offensive coordinator in 2016 and before that served as the quarterbacks coach for three seasons.
