Chicago Bears Hire Chiefs Assistant Matt Nagy as Coach

The Chiefs lost both offensive coordinator Matt Nagy and assistant head coach Brad Childress on Monday in two separate bits of news.

Nagy interviewed for the job on Sunday, a day after the Chiefs squandered a second-half lead in a 22-21 loss to the Tennessee Titans in a first-round National Football League playoff game.

Conte On Barkley: He Has Great Potential
Eden Hazard , who was likely to be rested anyway, is a doubt after being kicked on the calf in Wednesday's draw at Arsenal. Conte declined to address rumours West Ham striker Andy Carroll was a target, saying transfers were not his remit.

Larry Wisdom, who about 10 years ago was a major player in Chicago suburban real estate, played a pivotal role in Nagy's life. That kind of fire and passion coaching the entire offense could be something the Chiefs need next season. He did not call plays until late this season, but drew praise for his work with Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. The hiring comes after Pace interviewed New England Offensive Coordinator Josh McDaniels, Minnesota Offensive Coordinator Pat Shurmur, Minnesota Defensive Coordinator George Edwards, Bears Defensive Coordinator Vic Fangio, and Eagles Quarterbacks Coach John DeFilippo. The Bears are just 14-34 record in the past three years for a.292 winning percentage that ranks as the second-lowest in their history. His contract is up on Tuesday, and the Bears have reportedly been interested in retaining him in his position.
