Chicago Bears: Matt Nagy could bring Albert Wilson with him

Matt Nagy: 5 things to know about the new Bears coach
The (major) initial keys to success for Matt Nagy as Bears head coach

The Chicago Bears announced the hiring of Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy as their new head coach on Monday, initiating a shuffle among the leadership of the team's offensive for the third-straight season.

Former Bears Director of Pro Scouting, 670 The Score, and Pro Football Weekly analyst Greg Gabriel took some time to discuss the hire with Jarrett Payton on Monday for Sports Feed.

All signs point toward Nagy as a good choice. He got a big break, though it came with a pay cut, when he took the job as a coaching assistant during the 2010 season. The Colts looked as if they had the inside track on Nagy because their GM, Chris Ballard, had worked with Nagy in Kansas City for better than three years and had a strong relationship with him.

For a young quarterback like Trubisky, Wilson could be a flawless outlet and I think he would rack up catches in Nagy's offense in Chicago.

Nagy said he is eager to work with young quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 draft, but he said that wasn't the only factor in taking the job. Had Kansas City won, Nagy could have been interviewed early this week but not hired. "There will be ups and downs and I'll be able to understand where those are at and I'll have Ryan there in my corner to say, 'Hey Matt, listen, maybe you should look at it this way or that way.' But I'm going to grow and that's the lovely part of being in this situation right now". The unit propelled Kansas City to a 10-6 record and the AFC West Division championship.

Powerball Drawn, But No Winner; Jackpot Exceeds $440M, 9th Largest
According to Mega Millions, it would be the eighth-largest jackpot won in the game's history if the winning numbers are drawn. The odds of winning the Powerball lottery game got worse when changes were made in 2015, but the jackpots got larger.

Nagy coached in high school and was still working in real estate when he served as a coaching intern with the Eagles during training camp in 2008 and 2009. Nagy was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2016, but he did not call plays until Week 13 of this season. That is the type of offense Trubisky was in while at North Carolina.

The other important job that Nagy has is putting together a quality staff.

General manager Ryan Pace is betting his job Trubisky is the real deal and that Nagy can breathe life back into this failing franchise, which is 27-53 since firing Lovie Smith on December 31, 2012.

If the Bears can finally get Trubisky going, they'd have the potential to double their win total in 2018. The Bears would like to keep Fangio, but are aware their defensive coordinator has other options. We should know the answer to that very shortly as Fangio becomes a free agent coach Tuesday. "When there's gray area, bad things happen". Does he still want to be in Chicago after being passed up? Nagy made it clear, though, that everyone will be held accountable, no one more than himself, and that should be an excellent situation in which Trubisky can grow.

At least he'll have a bit more time to do that then he had for a major change in his career trajectory from Kansas City to Chicago. Pace, Nagy and their wives met for dinner later that night and began a football marriage with the Bears.
