Matt Nagy became the Bears head coach after rising up the ranks under Andy Reid. Now, after his dismissal from Chicago this offseason, the longtime assistant is returning to the Chiefs to work under his old boss once again. Kansas City announced Friday that it has hired the 43-year-old Nagy as a senior assistant and quarterbacks coach.

Nagy spent the last four seasons running the Bears, going 34-31 before his dismissal along with general manager Ryan Pace after the 2021 campaign. He went 12-4 in his first year on the job, guiding Chicago to an NFC North title and playoff appearance. But the Bears never topped eight wins in each of his ensuing three seasons, going 6-11 and missing the postseason this past year.

Prior to joining the Bears, Nagy spent five seasons with the Chiefs, first as QBs coach (2013-15) and then as offensive coordinator (2016-17), replacing future Eagles and current Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson as Reid’s top offensive assistant. He also worked under Reid for each of his previous five seasons as an NFL coach with the Eagles, rising to offensive quality control coach (2011-12) before Reid’s departure from Philadelphia.

Nagy replaces Mike Kafka as the Chiefs’ QBs coach entering 2022, after the latter joined new Giants coach Brian Daboll as New York’s offensive coordinator. Eric Bieniemy will remain Reid’s offensive coordinator after reportedly agreeing to a new one-year contract.
