Defensive coordinator Fangio returning to Bears

Share

According to the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs, the Bears are expected to retain Fangio's services next season.

Helfrich is Nagy's fourth reported coaching hire and the first without ties to Lovie Smith's Bears staff. The team said Friday it has hired former OR coach Mark Helfrich as offensive coordinator and Chris Tabor as special teams coordinator. There was some concern about Fangio's reaction to being passed over for that role, and he reportedly wondered if it merely was a token interview.

Fangio re-signed Friday and will continue to lead a defense he helped transform the past three seasons.

Fangio, of course, has been the Bears' defensive coordinator since 2015 when John Fox brought him in.

The Bears' defense finished in the top 10 in passing yards (seventh), points allowed (ninth) and total yards (10th) allowed in 2017. That included a run to the first College Football Playoff championship game during the 2014 season with Heisman Trophy victor Marcus Mariota at quarterback. Many players campagined for his return, and the Bears made it a priority.

Four days after the Bears hired Matt Nagy as head coach, they managed to bring Vic Fangio back as defensive coordinator. He is not sure if defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will stay. Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards, who interviewed with Pace for the head coaching position, is considered a possibility and he is coming out of contract.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. - New Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy says he is looking forward to working with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and leading a team that he insists is poised to make a jump.

It appears more likely now that Fangio is back that some of the position coaches on defense who worked with him under Fox the past few seasons could return to serve under Nagy.

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.
