Mark Helfrich agreed to join the Bears as Matt Nagy's offensive coordinator

The Chicago Bears have hired former OR coach Mark Helfrich as their offensive coordinator. So the move to a young, offensive-minded head coach as a direct opposite to John Fox was obvious with the hiring of Nagy, and he may have laid out how he wanted Helfrich as his offensive coordinator during his interview.

In his introductory press conference, Nagy said he and Fangio had spoken about retaining him.

The Arizona Cardinals possibly will be part of what will appear to be a defensive coordinator trade with the Chicago Bears. Fangio was believed to have been a candidate for the Green Bay Packers' defensive coordinator position, but the Packers hired former Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine on Wednesday; a day after the Los Angeles Chargers announced they had reached an agreement to retain their defensive coordinator, Gus Bradley.

Before posting a 37-16 overall record at OR, which included guiding the Ducks to a Pac-12 championship and an appearance in the national championship game in 2014, Helfrich was Kelly's offensive coordinator. By no means did that close off all options for Fangio.

Nagy's strong early work in assembling his staff is a likely byproduct - and beneficial one - of being the first of six clubs to hire a head coach this offseason.

Fangio has been available since Tuesday.

With Nagy calling the plays on offense, Fangio's defensive knowledge becomes that much more important. The Bears have made considerable progress building Nagy's staff, taking advantage of the head start they got on other teams seeking a new coach. But he's the second arrival from the college ranks, joining former Notre Dame offensive line coach Harry Hiestand, whose securing by Nagy on Thursday was met with rave reviews.
