Bears bring back defensive coordinator Vic Fangio on 3-year deal

Mark Helfrich agreed to join the Bears as Matt Nagy's offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich agreed to join the Bears as Matt Nagy's offensive coordinator

The former Oregon Ducks head coach and Southern Oregon University quarterback has reportedly agreed to become the new offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears.

Still, the Bears and Nagy were eager to retain Fangio, who inherited one of the NFL's worst defenses in 2015 and coached the unit back to respectability over the course of three seasons.

In Helfrich, Nagy has hired an offensive coordinator whose best work comes with a system different from his own. Charles London (running backs) and Harry Hiestand (offensive line) have also been hired by Nagy in the days following his introductory press conference at Halas Hall.

I believe UO athletic director Rob Mullens and the boosters in his inner circle should have cast a wider net before deciding to promote Helfrich - then UO offensive coordinator - to succeed Chip Kelly. He was sacked on the heels of a 4-8 finish in 2016.

Helfrich will not be calling plays initially, but he will inherit a second-year quarterback in Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears were 5-11 in 2017.

Hundreds attend funeral of Australian girl after dad's heartfelt message on bullying
The family has asked mourners to donate to "Dolly's Dream" a trust set up in their daughter's honour, in lieu of flowers today. Dolly's death has sparked both sadness and outrage among many families, including those from rural and regional Australia.

Tabor spent the past seven seasons as Cleveland's special teams coordinator. Nagy spent the past decade working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City, serving as the Chiefs' sole offensive coordinator this past season.

The development of Trubisky, the No. 2 overall draft pick last spring, could go a long way toward lifting an offense that ranked 30th overall and last in passing.

London has spent nine seasons in the National Football League - the past four as Houston's running backs coach.

The status of Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has been an open-ended question all week, but now it seems as though the team has finally found out his answer. He was an offensive assistant with the Bears from 2007-09. Tabor was Chicago's assistant special teams coach from 2008-2010.
