The Chicago Bears have officially hired Matt Eberflus as their new head coach. Speculation began earlier Thursday when it was leaked out that he was going to get the job.

Eberflus is now the 17th head coach in team history. He replaces Matt Nagy, who was fired at the end of the season.

Before becoming the new Bears head coach, he spent the last four seasons as the Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Matt become the next head coach of the Chicago Bears,” Poles said. “His experience, passion, character, and attention to detail made him the right man for both the job and the culture we intend to establish here at Halas Hall. Throughout the search, Matt impressed me when detailing his vision and plan for our team. We look forward to getting to work and assembling a top-notch staff and roster that will help us consistently compete for championships.”

Eberflus had a Top 10 defensive unit the past two seasons. Before joining the Colts as their defensive coordinator, he worked for the Dallas Cowboys from 2011 through 2017.

He also spent two seasons with the Cleveland Browns as their linebackers coach. He worked for the Toledo Rockets from 1992 through 2000.

He was the Missouri Tigers defensive coordinator from 2001 through 2008.

“I would like to thank Ryan and the McCaskey family for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to lead the Chicago Bears, one of the most storied franchises in all of the sports in one of the greatest cities in the world,” Eberflus said. “I am truly humbled and honored to be named your head coach and together we will do everything in our power to bring a Super Bowl championship back to Chicago.”
