Bears hire Chiefs OC Nagy as head coach

The Bears will hire Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as their new head coach, the Sun-Times' Adam Jahns reported late Monday morning. It's a decision that will dictate just how long he serves as Chicago's general manager. The Bears went 14-34 under Fox in his three seasons as head coach.

Nagy helped Alex Smith to a breakout season that saw him lead the National Football League in passer rating.

Larry Wisdom, who about 10 years ago was a major player in Chicago suburban real estate, played a pivotal role in Nagy's life.

The Chiefs won the AFC West, only to blow an 18-point halftime lead in a playoff loss to Tennessee on Saturday. 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.

Fox was sacked last week after posting a 5-11 record on the season.

Chicago also interviewed Philadelphia quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, Minnesota and New England offensive coordinators Pat Shurmur and Josh McDaniels, Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards and Chicago defensive coordinator Vic Fangio.
