  • Bears hire former Chiefs OC Matt Nagy as next head coach

The Chicago Bears have found their next head coach.

The Chiefs won the AFC West, only to blow an 18-point halftime lead in a playoff loss to Tennessee on Saturday. That and somebody who is willing to vouch for the running game first rather than the pass-happy approach that is normally taken by coach Andy Reid.

During an appearance on Viceland's "Desus & Mero", Nolan called President Donald Trump a "f*cking stupid person". Nolan also joked about Patriots QB Tom Brady not being smart and that she was on a lot of meds for a head cold.

Nagy is reported to have been a huge fan of Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, which was most likely a determining factor in Pace's decision.

Chicago also interviewed Philadelphia quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo, Minnesota and New England offensive coordinators Pat Shurmur and Josh McDaniels, Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards and Chicago defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. His contract is up on Tuesday, and the Bears have reportedly been interested in retaining him in his position.
