They said it: Bears hire Matt Nagy

SB Nation
"A football coach with a self-admitted 'type-A personality', but also a relatable guy who doesn't take himself so seriously. Someone who one can easily connect with. Nagy doesn't speak with ham-fisted cliches. He speaks with his greater goals for that 'founding' franchise in mind like the confident offensive innovator he is." - Robert Zeglinski | Read More

"Given his background, Nagy will presumably call the offensive plays as head coach for the Bears. That's a big ask for a guy who 10 years ago was still a quarterback in the Arena League. Nagy will handle it well if he develops as a head coach as well as he did as a quarterbacks teacher and offensive coordinator." – Adam Teicher | Read More

Bleacher Report
"While it'll surely be nice for Nagy to bring the average age of the annual head coach class photo down just a touch, his youth serves a much greater purpose for the Bears. If their young quarterback and coach click, then Chicago has put in place the two essential pillars for a successful rebuild, one that can lead to winning quickly and returning to the postseason for the first time since the 2010 season." – Sean Tomlinson | Read More

Sports Illustrated
"Expect Nagy to make good use of this mobility for no other reason than that slower-developing play designs, like rollouts and bootlegs, work well at Soldier Field, where wind, cold weather, and thick, long grass can hinder players' speed. Running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen will be Chicago's featured weapons, with Trubisky serving as a ball-distributor." – Andy Benoit | Read More
