Chiefs coordinator Nagy to be named Bears head coach

Bears choose Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as next head coach

Maybe the Bears even looked at Pederson's success as a reason to hire Nagy.

Nagy eased those concerns for Pace during their meeting in Kansas City on Sunday morning, taking full responsibility for the play-calling miscues and explaining how he will become a better coach from it. Nagy echoed that as he was introduced at Halas Hall on Tuesday afternoon as the 16th head coach in Bears' history.

A college quarterback at Delaware, Nagy will replace John Fox, who was sacked following three seasons as head coach and a record of 14-34.

The Chiefs and Nagy were said to be very high on Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky coming out of the draft past year. He emerged as their top choice after meeting with the team on Monday.

After the Kansas City Chiefs lost 22-21 on Wild Card weekend against the Tennessee Titans, it was possible the Chiefs might lose some coaches.

In 2016, Nagy was promoted to co-offensive coordinator alongside Brad Childress, and he became the sole coordinator this past year.

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.

Nagy was a quarterback for four teams over six seasons in the Arena Football League, throwing for nearly 19,000 yards with 374 touchdown passes and 55 interceptions. Childress just completed his 19th year in the National Football League and his fifth season with the Chiefs. He is not sure if defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will stay. He was also a Head Coach for Cleveland Browns and won 7 games in his first season. In total he has 37 years of coaching experience on both the collegiate and professional levels. He fulfilled the assumed requirement many thought general manager Ryan Pace wanted - a young, offensive-minded coach.

Chicago hopes Nagy does the same for Mitch Trubisky and the Bears offense.

Trubisky had plenty of promising moments during his rookie campaign. Trubisky this past season completed 59.4% of his passes for 2,193 yards seven touchdowns and seven interceptions. As for the Bears, they haven't made the playoffs since 2010, and their last winning season was in 2012, when they finished 10-6, but still missed out on the postseason.

While DeFilippo, 39, won't be the Bears' next head coach, there's still a chance he might leave.
