The Chicago Bears will name Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as their next head coach, according to Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times.
The Bears interviewed some great candidates and are in a situation where they need to hire someone to groom Mitch Trubisky into a stud.

The 39-year old Nagy was given playcalling duties in Kansas City in early December by Andy Reid. Reid’s coaching tree is prodigious and several of his former assistants have moved on to success elsewhere, and Pace is banking that Nagy will be the next. This was a crucial hire for Chicago, because Mitchell Trubisky is entering a key season in year two where the franchise needs to put better receiving weapons around him and see if he is the answer.
