Chicago Bears hires new head coach - – Rockford’s News Leader

Chicago Bears tab Matt Nagy as new coach


The Chicago Bears hire Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as head coach.

This comes a week after the team fired John Fox.

Nagy is a disciple of Andy Reid. Nagy started as a coaching intern with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008, and has been with Reid ever since.

The Bears fired Fox after three losing seasons, ending one of the least successful coaching stints in team history. While Fox was let go after a 5-11 finish, general manager Ryan Pace got a contract extension through the 2021 season.

Chicago has had four consecutive losing seasons - each with 10 or more losses. The Bears haven't finished above .500 since they let Lovie Smith go following a 10-6 finish in 2012. They haven't been to the playoffs since 2010.
