Bears reportedly hire Mark Helfrich as offensive coordinator

Bears reportedly hire Mark Helfrich as offensive coordinator

In just a matter of three days, Ryan Pace, Matt Nagy and the Chicago Bears have laid the foundations for an identity that we may have never seen before in this city.

Bears now have hired former Oregon HC Mark Helfrich as their offensive coordinator, per source.

Helfrich comes from the coaching tree of Chip Kelly and Dirk Koetter, which means he doesn't have a one-track mind in offensive play-calling.

The Bears are close to naming former OR head coach Mark Helfrich as their new offensive coordinator, according to Mike Mulligan of the Mully & Hanley Show on 670 The Score.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid announced the promotion in a statement Tuesday. He needed to make a hire along those same lines.

Chief among those roles will be to help develop incoming second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

'Window closing' as search expands for missing in California mudslide
At least 17 people were killed and hundreds of homes damaged or destroyed when mudslides tore through Montecito early Tuesday. Rainfall rates exceeding 1 inch per hour at times contributed to the damaging mudslides in portions of Southern California.

The radio host asked Childress, "We had heard reports that he could have had the Colts job but he looked at this Bears situation and went: I like the young quarterback". But the offense was still formidable, resulting in quarterback Marcus Mariota winning the 2014 Heisman Trophy.

"That all started for me with this organization in the interview process". Yes, that's the most important position on our team.

The University of Arizona was reportedly interested in hiring Helfrich to replace Rich Rodriguez.

A former Arena Football League player who previously served as an assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles from 2008-2012, Nagy said he plans to call the plays himself in his first head coaching job.

Creating a culture:Nagy didn't hesitate when asked during his introductory press conference what he wants fans to know he's bringing to the Bears. Helfrich's teams steadily got worse over time, but their offense consistently remained as one of the elite units in the country.
