Vic Fangio is now Staying as Defensive Coordinator

Vic Fangio is now Staying as Defensive Coordinator

Before becoming the Ducks' head coach, Helfrich was their quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator from 2009-12 under Chip Kelly.

One of the things Bears general manager Ryan Pace praised his new coach Matt Nagy for was his creativity and in the early stages of forming his staff, that's pretty evident.

Helfrich is also an alumnus of Southern Oregon University. Helfrich, who spent the 2017 season as a football analyst for Fox Sports, has a strong track record as a coach, and will look to prove himself at the professional level.

Helfrich didn't call plays as Oregon's offensive coordinator and he won't in Chicago. But he's the second arrival from the college ranks, joining former Notre Dame OL coach Harry Hiestand, whose securing by Nagy on Thursday was met by rave reviews.




Helfrich took the Ducks to the national title game in his second season, something that gets glossed over by critics who give the credit to quarterback Marcus Mariota. However, he finished 4-8 in 2016 and was dismissed. Nagy spent the past decade working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City, serving as the Chiefs' sole offensive coordinator this past season.

He is trying to help turn around a team that missed the playoffs for the seventh straight season and hasn't finished above.500 since Lovie Smith was sacked after going 10-6 in 2012.

The Bears were the first team to strike with their head coach and were able to put together a nice staff because of it.

It also signals the Bears' need to add speed and dynamic playmakers after the catch to an offense that was severely lacking in both areas, save for rookie sensation Tarik Cohen, whose upside is very exciting with the new creative offensive minds on board. He's worked in Chicago before, serving as a quality control coach and offensive assistant from 2007-'09.
