Chief Announces New Attack Coordinator

Former Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy officially returns to his roots. After spending last season as the Kansas City quarterback head coach, Nagy has been named as the team’s next offensive coordinator.

The promotion comes shortly after former Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy was formally introduced to the same role as the Washington Commanders.

While last season represented a return to Mr. Nagy’s hometown, he has now officially taken on the same role he took on with Kansas City in 2017. That season saw Nagy oversees an offense led by veteran Alex Smith with then-rookie Patrick Mahomes backing him up.

Nagy, 44, eventually turned this into head coaching with the aforementioned Bears. He hit a 34-31 record in four seasons with Chicago before being fired after the 2021 campaign. That span included Nagy leading Chicago to two playoffs. Before his arrival, Chicago had made all of the playoffs once in the previous 11 seasons.

The promotion of Nagy to offensive coordinator makes perfect sense for Andy Reid and the defending champion Chiefs. He knew very well the type of attack Reid liked to perform. It will be a seamless transition from Bieniemy.

While Nagy is unlikely to call for continuations, he will be one of the individuals working closely with Reid and Mahomes to develop the game plan. With Nagy coaching him last season, Mahomes won both the NFL’s MVP award and the Super Bowl’s MVP award, joining the elite company in the process.

For Nagy, this could be the stepping stone to another head coach contract later on. There was no reason for him to look elsewhere than what the chiefs had available.
