Chiefs hire Matt Nagy as quarterbacks coach


(670 The Score) After being fired in Chicago, former Bears coach Matt Nagy has landed back in Kansas City.

Nagy has been hired by the Chiefs as a senior assistant and quarterbacks coach, the team announced Friday. Nagy is rejoining Kansas City coach Andy Reid, with whom he previously worked as an assistant.

Nagy, 43, was fired by the Bears on Jan. 10 after four seasons as coach. He was 34-31 in the regular season and 0-2 in the postseason in his tenure in Chicago. The Bears went 6-11 in 2021.

Nagy worked for the Chiefs from 2013-'17, first as a quarterbacks coach for Reid and later as offensive coordinator. Nagy initially broke into coaching under Reid in Philadelphia, first as an intern during parts of the 2008-'09 seasons and later in a full-time role in 2010.

Nagy has previously referred to Reid as one of his greatest mentors.

"I just have so much respect for him, not only just as a coach but as a person and what he's done in his life, the way he's gone about it," Nagy said in 2019. "He's family to me."

In Kansas City, Nagy will replace former Chiefs quarterbacks coach Mike Kafka, who was hired as the Giants' new offensive coordinator recently.

The Chiefs' hiring of Nagy comes a day after current offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy committed to returning in that role for Kansas City.

The Bears hired Matt Eberflus as their new head coach on Jan. 27.
