Former Eagles coach Doug Pederson visits Bears camp to consult with Matt Nagy

Nagy views his time with the Super Bowl-winning Pederson as mutually beneficial.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. (670 The Score) -- Bears coach Matt Nagy took his familiar place 20 yards behind the line of scrimmage Saturday, hands on both knees and watching closely as rookie quarterback Justin Fields led the second-team offense.

Standing behind Nagy was a familiar face wearing a white Bears visor. It was former Eagles coach Doug Pederson, who's out of coaching for the first time since 2005. Having been fired by Philadelphia in January, Pederson is visiting Halas Hall for a weekend with a close friend in Nagy.

"For me, it's nice even when we get off the field," Nagy said of Pederson. "He comes in and we watch some tape. It's good to just talk head football coach stuff. I like hearing his ideas on stuff, whether it's in practice, ideas, schedule ideas, game day stuff. For me, I respect who he is, how he does things."
