Nagy takes over a Bears team that earned six or fewer wins and finished fourth in the NFC North each of the last four seasons.
The 39-year-old spent his entire coaching career under Andy Reid, taking his first NFL job as an intern with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2008. Nagy was elevated to an assistant in 2010 and quality control coach in 2011. Nagy then traveled with Reid to Kansas City in 2013 as the quarterbacks coach. He was elevated to offensive coordinator in 2016.
Nagy became a hot coaching candidate after Reid handed over play-calling duties during the Chiefs' mid-season offensive struggles. K.C.'s offense perked up with Nagy calling the shots. Alex Smith's deep passing game returned, and Nagy used a bevy of run-pass options to breathe life back into a stagnated run-game.
In November, Reid called Nagy the best head coaching prospect he's ever had -- a list that includes Doug Pederson, Ron Rivera, John Harbaugh and Sean McDermott.
With Nagy locked down, the Bears' brass will turn their attention to the defensive side of the ball. Rapoport reported Chicago is attempting to retain defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, whose contract expires on Tuesday. Fangio could have several suitors if he decides to leave Chicago.
