As we continue with our 2018 NFL Awards, this award goes to the 2018 Associated Press Coach of the Year. This was a tough decision.

However, our pick is Chicago Bears first-year head coach Matt Nagy. He guided the Bears to the biggest improvement from the previous season.

In 2017, Chicago had won just five games as they went 5-11. This season; however, the Bears went 12-4.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien was in consideration. Following a 4-12 mark in 2017, the Texans improved seven games to an 11-5 mark.

Nagy beat out fellow first-year head coach Frank Reich with the Indianapolis Colts. Reich improved the Colts record by six wins in 2018 with a 10-6 mark over the 4-12 mark in 2017.

Interim Cleveland Browns head coach Gregg Williams was also in consideration. The Browns went from an 0-16 mark to a 7-8-1 record this season, including a 5-3 after replacing former head coach Hue Jackson.

The Browns even had a three-game win streak from December 9th through December 23rd, as they defeated the Carolina Panthers, Denver Broncos, and the Cincinnati Bengals during this stretch.

The 40-year-old Dunellen, New Jersey native lost his first career game as an NFL head coach. He then guided the Bears to three straight wins before the team’s bye.

Following the bye week, the Bears lost two straight games, before winning five straight games, including a Thanksgiving Day win over the Detroit Lions. After an overtime loss to the New York Giants, the Bears won four straight games to end the season.
