Helfrich, 44, hasn't coached since his dismissal from OR in 2016. According to reports, Kelly is also pursuing Helfrich to coordinate his offense at UCLA, so the Bears do have some competition.

His presence is certainly one of the many reasons Nagy was offered the head coaching job in the first place. Nagy signed on with the Philadelphia Eagles under Reid as a coaching intern in 2008 and traveled to Kansas City with Reid in 2013, slowly moving up the ranks along the way. In April's upcoming NFL Draft, it is expected that guard Quenton Nelson and tackle Mike McGlinchey will both be first round picks.

"It was just a feel, and I just know where we're at here, it felt good".

Childress replied, "Well, I know for a fact - I wasn't in the room - I know who he talked to first, who he talked to second".

When it comes to running the Bears' offense, there is no doubt the man who will have the most influence on the group.

"It's certainly a part of it, but that's not the reason why I'm here", Nagy said on Tuesday, via NFL.com. The Bears have finished last in the NFC North for four straight seasons.

There are still jobs available, including positions with the Arizona Cardinals, but Fangio has not had any interviews outside of Chicago, so there is still a strong possibility that he remains with the Bears. With the success he had during his eight seasons in Eugene (four as head coach), he wouldn't go long without landing another job. Did Nagy and Chris Ballard not see eye-to-eye?

While every opening has its own appeals and drawbacks, the Colts is uniquely enticing in that they have a franchise quarterback in Andrew Luck.

Hopefully we can get some answers to these questions soon. Chicago is not only getting a great coach, they are getting a tremendous husband and father.
