Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy is going from a man considered to have a wonderful offensive mind to being the dude manning the helm for the Chicago Bears.
On Monday, per social media era rules, the Bears announced the hiring of Nagy as the franchise’s new head coach on the mean streets of Twitter.
This news isn’t terribly shocking, as Chicago interviewed Nagy on Sunday. Many qualified experts felt that the now former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator wast the favorite to ultimately land the job.
Nagy, who helped the Chiefs install a collegiate-like offense, helps a Chicago team that had been looking for an offensive-minded head coach to help groom young gunslinger Mitchell Trubisky.
The former assistant has spent his entire NFL coaching career on Andy Reid’s staffs in Philadelphia and Kansas City. He became the offensive coordinator in Kansas City in 2016 and took on offensive play calling duties during the 2017 season.
Nagy, who also interviewed with the Indianapolis Colts, will replace John Fox, who was fired after three years in Chicago.
The Bears have a good, young and still developing core of offensive talent. It will be interesting to see what kind of system Nagy installs upon his arrival.
