Ex-Kansas City OC Matt Nagy Named Chicago Bears New Head Coach
After completing an interview on Sunday, Chicago Bear’s GM Ryan Pace has decided that former Kansas City Chiefs Offensive Coordinator, Matt Nagy, is the man to replace John Fox.
Matt Nagy come from a long line of coaches from the Andy Reid tree of coaching, including Sean McDermott, Head coach in Buffalo, Doug Peterson, Head coach in Philadelphia, Ron Rivera, Head Coach in Carolina, Todd Bowles, Head Coach for New York Jets and even John Harbaugh, Head Coach in Baltimore.
As most should know, Reid comes from the even larger coaching tree of former Green Bay Packers coach, Mike Holmgren.
Matt Nagy has spent the last 10 NFL season under Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City. Ascending to Offensive Coordinator when Doug Pederson left to take the head coaching job in Philadelphia. However, Matt Nagy did not call plays until Week 13 versus the NY Jets, when Reid handed over the reins to him. Alex Smith and the offense took off and won 4 of their last 5 games to clinch the AFC West.
Nagy, the former Delaware Blue Hen and Arena League quarterback, will look to develop last year’s 2nd overall pick, Mitch Trubisky. Nagy will look to improve on a 5-11 season and continue to advance young offensive stars into a contender again.
