Chiefs coordinator Nagy to be named Bears head coach

The Chiefs had three first downs and 61 yards in the second half.

So there you have it.

The Bears will introduce Nagy at a news conference on Tuesday. From there, the offense went stagnant and couldn't sustain drives, and star running back Kareem Hunt had just 11 carries in the game. Among other heinous indiscretions.

While the Chiefs finished sixth in points (25.9) and fifth in total offense (375.4 yards) in 2017, Nagy inherits a Chicago offense that ranked 29th in points (16.5) and 30th in total offense (287.4). This is familiar ground for Reid, who has muddied the play-calling waters for years, in some cases.

The feeling was that Reid really wanted Pederson to get a head-coaching job to add branches to his tree that now includes Pederson, Todd Bowles (Jets), John Harbaugh (Ravens), Ron Rivera (Panthers), Sean McDermott (Bills) and Nagy.

Will the real play call please stand up? Impressive numbers for a first time playcaller. He became the Chiefs' quarterbacks coach when Andy Reid took over in Kansas City and then became the offensive coordinator when Doug Pederson left for the Eagles job. It wasn't a stunningly good showing on its own. He began with the Eagles as a coaching intern in 2008 and eventually followed Reid to Kansas City before becoming the Chiefs quarterbacks coach in 2013. He's innovative. He has strong character.

At 39, Nagy is now the third-youngest coach in the National Football League today. He got a big break, though it came with a pay cut, when he took the job as a coaching assistant during the 2010 season. Maybe he's still a little green. "I've gone back and I've looked at [the game tape]". There's scenarios where I wish I would have made some different choices with the playcall. I'll grow from it. "I'll use that as a strength here for me with the Chicago Bears".

As well he should. 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 unit propelled Kansas City to a 10-6 record and the AFC West Division championship.

Bears GM Ryan Pace said he had "mixed emotions" while watching Nagy's playcalling in the second half.

"There's a lot of guys that can win an interview or win a press conference, you know?" "You never know exactly how it's going to go until you do it", Nagy said. "And Matt has a ton of substance".

"This is a team game and everyone on this team is just as important as the quarterback, that was just a part", said Nagy.

For Fangio to stay, three things have to happen. However, half of the coaches in this year's playoffs have three years or less of head coaching experience.

This hire raises hope for the team.

Nagy's departure may be the first of other changes in the team's coaching staff. That will be one of the many things Nagy will need to help solve. "Coach Reid believes in Matt Nagy, and so do I". The Bears will only be as good as the staff that Nagy is able to put together.

"But I called every play in that second half". I thought it may be a few weeks before we found out who was going where.
