New Bears coach Nagy faces big task to lift struggling team
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) — New Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy says he is looking forward to working with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and leading a team that he insists is poised to make a jump.
He sees "a 'want' there to be great" by the organization.
The Bears introduced Nagy on Tuesday, a day after he was hired as the team's 16th head coach to replace the fired John Fox.
General manager Ryan Pace says this is "about more than a quarterback," though developing Trubisky is crucial.
Nagy says he will call plays and that he was the one doing that — not Andy Reid — in the second half of Kansas City's playoff loss to Tennessee. He is not sure if defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will stay.
