Ex-Oregon HC Mark Helfrich Reportedly Hired as Bears' Offensive Coordinator

Why would he be smiling?

Helfrich, 44, joins new head coach Matt Nagy's staff after he was sacked by OR following the 2016 season.

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.

In fact, outside of Luck, there aren't many draws to a Colts team that has struggled on both sides of the football, particularly without their star quarterback.

Nagy is expected to call his own plays in Chicago, but the addition of Helfrich could impact how the Bears look offensively with young quarterback Mitchell Trubisky heading into his second year as the starter.

Hiestand, 59, is a 35-year coaching veteran who spent the past five seasons overseeing the Fighting Irish offensive line.

Nagy and Helfrich could find similar success in the National Football League with the right personnel.

Matt Nagy's coaching staff is really starting to come into shape.

Helfrich chose the Chicago job despite reported interest from the University of Arizona to be their head coach, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Creating a culture:Nagy didn't hesitate when asked during his introductory press conference what he wants fans to know he's bringing to the Bears. "You never know exactly how it's going to go until you do it", Nagy said.

Helfrich spent four years as OR head coach, with the Ducks going 37-16 during that span. His salary with the Bears will mitigate what the school still owes him.

"I have a command, I feel like, in the room". Now it's talk, but we've got to make it happen. I have my notes.

"I'm proud of Matt and the tireless amount of selfless work he put in to earn this opportunity", Reid said, via the Chiefs' official website.
