Packers Reportedly Name Pettine Defensive Coordinator

The Bears named Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as their new head coach, the team announced Monday. In Kansas City, Nagy was the quarterbacks coach from 2013-15 before being promoted to co-offensive coordinator in 2016 after Doug Pederson left to become Eagles head coach and offensive coordinator in 2017. He played quarterback at DE before a long career in the Arena Football League. In those four games, the Chiefs offense averaged better than 400 yards a game in total offense and scored an average of 29 points a game while winning three of four games. In this coaching cycle, the only coaches who could have been hired this week were Nagy and Carolina's Steve Wilks, so it makes sense that Pace stuck around KC. But now Nagy is flying solo - and he just aced his simulator test in front of the media by saying the failure in that loss was on him.

The 39-year-old Nagy spent the past 10 seasons working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City.

"That there, that's a learning situation for me", Nagy said. Nagy had a lot of copilots in Kansas City and with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he got his National Football League start under Reid in 2008. Looking at the Kansas City offense, what should be exciting to Bears fans is the extensive use of run-pass option plays.

Before joining the Chiefs, Nagy coached for three years under Reid with the Eagles, where he served two seasons as Philadelphia's quality control coach (2011-12).

Nagy intends to call plays with the Bears, something he did not do with the Chiefs until Week 13 of this season. Kansas City incorporated RPOs because of quarterback Alex Smith's outstanding athleticism. I'll grow from it, and I'll learn from it, I promise you that. Nagy's offense should fit well with Trubisky's skill set.

The search for Nagy's replacement could start within the Chiefs current staff.

General manager Ryan Pace is betting his job Trubisky is the real deal and that Nagy can breathe life back into this failing franchise, which is 27-53 since firing Lovie Smith on December 31, 2012. He's got a lot of work to do, considering the Bears have missed the playoffs for the last seven seasons. As long as Vic Fangio stays on as defensive coordinator for another season, that unit will continue to dominate and provide more opportunities for Trubisky. "When there's gray area, bad things happen". They're not allowed to block anyone from interviewing for head coaching jobs.

Matt Nagy already is going bald so he can't blame the Bears if his coaching debut produces a fifth straight losing season in 2018. If the answer to any of these questions is no, then Fangio will not be a part of the Bears' staff in 2018. Nagy most likely will be the offensive coordinator himself, so whoever gets that position will actually be his assistant.

Nagy will be the play-caller for Trubisky, sources told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Pace, Nagy and their wives met for dinner later that night and began a football marriage with the Bears.
