Bears Hire Former Oregon HC Mark Helfrich as Offensive Coordinator

Oregon State Athletics

Nagy said he will call the plays and the offense will be his design, but Helfrich will obviously have plenty of influence. There was speculation Fangio could join forces with Pat Shurmur if he lands a head-coaching job this offseason-Shurmur is viewed as the favorite to replace Bruce Arians in Arizona-but instead it looks like he'll be back for a fourth season in Chicago.

Helfrich has never coached in the National Football League before, but he worked for current Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter at Boise State before a successful run at OR under Kelly, the former Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers coach. Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace announced the hiring of Matt Nagy as the NFL football team's 16th head coach, Monday, Jan. 8, 2018.

New Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy has yet to coach a game, but he already notched a big victory. His coaching staff seems likely to take shape fairly quickly, and on Thursday morning ESPN's Adam Schefter reported former OR head coach Mike Helfrich is coming aboard as offensive coordinator.

The 39-year-old Nagy spent the past 10 seasons working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City.

Helfrich will not be calling plays initially, but he will inherit a second-year quarterback in Mitchell Trubisky.

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

The news figures to be well-received by Bears players, who lobbied for him to stay.

According to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, the Bears are expected to retain Fangio's services next season. It accomplished that while losing six starters or key contributors to injured reserve: outside linebackers Leonard Floyd, Willie Young and Pernell McPhee, inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman, safety Quintin Demps and defensive end Mitch Unrein. They have resided in last in the NFC North four straight seasons.
