Lancaster County native Matt Nagy introduced as head coach of Chicago Bears

The former Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator was announced as the team's new coach Monday morning, replacing John Fox, who was sacked on New Year's Day following three seasons with the team.

"I called every single play in the second half", Nagy said. On the other hand, the Chiefs' were fifth in total offense and seventh in passing with Nagy as their offensive coordinator.

The Nagy era in Chicago is officially underway.

Nagy was originally tabbed as the Chiefs offensive coordinator following the departure of Doug Pederson to the Philadelphia Eagles. Fortunately for me, I was part of a program and organization in Kansas City where we kind of came into that-same type of deal in 2013- and I got to witness that under coach Reid how you do that.

That the Bears hired an offensive coach was hardly surprising given how much they have riding on their quarterback's development. "I'm excited", said Bears fan Tobe LeMoyne.

First responders also showed up to the Holzer household Sunday afternoon to catch a few minutes of the game with David and Jeanne. He finished 19 of 29 for 221 yards and three touchdowns, adding another game-winning drive to his untarnishable legacy.

Vic Fangio, the team's highly regarded defensive coordinator each of the past three seasons whose contract expired Tuesday, is likely to return in the same role under new coach Matt Nagy, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport tweeted Tuesday night. The spotlight on him just turned up a whole lot of watts on Monday when he went all-in on Nagy as his choice to replace John Fox as head coach. From 2013, Smith averaged 20 touchdown passes and posted a quarterback rating over 91 in four of his five seasons with an National Football League high quarterback rating of 104.7 this season.

As the Chiefs' OC in 2017, Nagy was given control of the play calling midway during the year, and Kansas City ended the regular season with a four-game winning streak, averaging 28.0 points per game during that span. The Bears are on their third head coach since then, with Nagy trying to do what Marc Trestman and Fox could not.

If Nagy has Trubisky playing at a high level in 2018; chances are everything else falls into place.

The other important job that Nagy has is putting together a quality staff. "We thought, 'Let this play out.' Matt's just getting his feet set, and after that, his first priority is going to be our existing staff, and then attacking the coaching candidates".

For Fangio to stay, three things have to happen. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reported that head coach Mike McCarthy is expected to talk to Fangio. Second, Nagy has to want Fangio to be his coordinator, and third, Fangio has to want to work for a new and young head coach. "You need to be able to take that play that they're installing and you become a teacher in your classroom".
