Mark Helfrich joining Bears as offensive coordinator, reports say

The Bears hired Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy right as their head coach The Bears hired Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy right as their head coach

The Bears invested a lot of resources to draft him in 2017 with the No. 2 pick.

Helfrich, who was sacked after Oregon's 4-8 finish in 2016, will be hired as the offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears, according to an ESPN report. He became the replacement to head coach Chip Kelly at OR and coached the Ducks from 2013-16 before spending this past season as an analyst.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported that the Green Bay Packers have interest in Fangio and would be among the leading candidates to hire the respected coordinator should he leave Chicago.

So Helfrich won't just be a spread offense guy bringing that system to Chicago.

Adam Rittenberg: Helfrich has worked with several quarterbacks who possess similar skill sets to Trubisky.

The Oregon native has made stops at Boise State (1998-2000), Arizona State (2001-2005), Colorado (2006-08) and Oregon (2009-2012) as an assistant.

Ben Volin of The Boston Globe also tweeted that Luck is a "wild card" to many around the league. With his experience at the College Level and getting a Coordinator Position, all the pressure is off.

Want Medicaid? Get a job, Trump administration says
Other states to receive approval are Arizona, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, New Hampshire, Utah and Wisconsin. As of October 2017, almost 75m individuals were enrolled in Medicaid and the children's health insurance program (Chip).


Helfrich enters the NFL after spending some time away from football following a rough 2016 season with the Oregon Ducks.

Nagy was hired Monday to replace John Fox as Bears head coach.

AR: He's already been in this position with Chip Kelly at OR, so there shouldn't be any surprises.

There were many qualities that Bears general manager Ryan Pace was seeking in a new head coach, but one was more important than any other. Playcalling is often a collaborative process, and Helfrich will be able to provide input from many years as a coordinator/playcaller.

"Harry is an outstanding coach - one of the best offensive line coaches in football", head coach Brian Kelly said in a statement.

Nagy said he will call the plays and the offense will be his design but Helfrich will obviously have plenty of influence.
