The Chicago Bears are expected to hire Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus as their new head coach. Once made official, he will replace Matt Nagy, who was fired at the end of the season.

Eberflus will work with the Bears’ new GM Ryan Poles. Eberflus was expected to be a candidate for the Jacksonville Jaguars head coaching vacancy before being hired by the Bears.

The new leadership will attempt to turn the Bears’ fortunes around. The team has missed the playoffs in nine of their last 11 seasons.

He inherits a team that went 6-11 in 2021 under Nagy. He will now have to hire an offensive staff that will help tutor Justin Fields, who was a first-round draft pick by the Bears in the 2021 NFL Draft.

This will be Eberflus’ first head coaching opportunity. He had been the Colts defensive coordinator since the 2018 season.

He has worked in the NFL since the 2009 season. He also spent time with the Cleveland Browns and the Dallas Cowboys.

Before being hired by the Browns, he worked in college football. He worked for the Toledo Rockets from 1992 through 2000.

He also spent time as the Missouri Tigers defensive coordinator from 2001 through 2008.
