Chiefs coordinator Nagy to be named Bears head coach

Share

With Matt Nagy officially leaving to be the Chicago Bears' next head coach, the Chiefs will be on the hunt for their next offensive coordinator.

The Colts interviewed Nagy on Sunday after the Chiefs' collapsing loss to the Tennessee Titans in the wild-card round of the playoffs on Saturday. That and somebody who is willing to vouch for the running game first rather than the pass-happy approach that is normally taken by coach Andy Reid.

The team announced the hiring of Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy on Monday.

In 2015, he was promoted to co-offensive coordinator and then became the sole offensive coordinator in 2017. He did not call plays until late this season, but has drawn praise for his work with Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith.

Kansas City was sixth in the National Football League in points with 25.9 a game and fifth in total offense with 375.4 yards a game this past season. The Bears are just 14-34 record in the past three years for a.292 winning percentage that ranks as the second-lowest in their history. Pace will likely be working around the clock to make that happen before appearing before the media at a scheduled news conference on Tuesday.
