The Chicago Bears have found its next head coach. The team is expected to hire Matt Nagy as head coach.

He was previously the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator. This will be his first head coach experience.

Nagy replaces John Fox, who was fired after the season. Fox was the Bears head coach for the past three seasons.

Nagy assumed the play-calling duties from head coach Andy Reid in December. Yet, on Saturday night, the Chiefs offense sputtered in the second half, as they did not score in the AFC Wild Card round game.

The Tennessee Titans won 22-21 in historic fashion. They had to overcome an 18-point halftime deficit to have the opportunity to play the New England Patriots this Saturday.

According to a report, the Bears picked Nagy to be the Head Coach, because the former quarterback had the most confidence in Mitchell Trubisky. Nagy reportedly wanted the Chiefs to pick him; however, he was already gone with the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Chiefs, who acquired the 10th overall pick in a trade, picked Patrick Mahomes II.

The 39-year-old New Jersey native will finally go out on his own after being linked to Reid throughout his coaching career. He will reportedly target Vic Fangio to be his defensive coordinator.

Whoever he hires as an offensive coordinator, it will likely just be a title only position, as Nagy will likely call the plays.

He has been coaching in the NFL since the 2008 season when he was a coaching intern with the Philadelphia Eagles. After being a coaching intern with the Eagles during the 2009 season, as well, he was a coaches assistant in 2010.

He then spent the next two seasons as the Eagles offensive quality control coach. After Reid was fired by the Eagles and quickly joined the Chiefs later, he served as the Chiefs quarterbacks coach from 2013 through 2015.

He spent the past two seasons as the Chiefs offensive coordinator.
