"You never know exactly how it's going to go until you do it", Nagy said. He's a victor. He's intelligent.

No - and his straight-up ownership of the mistakes he made in that game seemed to be strong evidence that accountability will be one of his best characteristics. He's got a great demeanor about him. "And he shares the same passion for the game that I have".

But during his introductory news conference in Chicago as the Bears' new head coach, former Chiefs offensive coordinator Matt Nagy provided some clarity on Tuesday. He replaces John Fox, who was relieved of his duties January 1 after compiling a disappointing 14-34 record in three seasons with the team. With Matt Nagy at the controls of the offensive strategy, Kansas City jumped out to a 21-3 lead only to squander it in the second half at a chilly Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chicago Bears ended their search for a new head coach in a week.

"I'm a big fan of his", Reid said of his longtime assistant. "I'm proud to be able to pair with Matt and attack our plan for success together". "This is truly an honor", he said.

"I'm still pinching myself. Everything happens really fast, but it means a lot to be here".

"I felt awful for our team, for our organization, that put in a lot of good work".

Hoda Kotb Named Permanent Co-Anchor of NBC's 'Today'
NBC News chairman Andy Lack announced Kotb's promotion in a memo to staff on Tuesday (02Jan18). The pairing of two women is a departure from the typical man-and-woman morning show format.

You can see why Trubisky wants training camp to begin tomorrow. "I stand by it, and I promise I'm going to learn from it". "We're going to build a competitive team, and in the end we'll be able to look each in the eyes, respect each other and smile".

When asked after the game who called the offensive plays, Chiefs coach Andy Reid took the blame. Kansas City incorporated RPOs because of quarterback Alex Smith's outstanding athleticism. The 12-year veteran led the National Football League this year with a career-high 104.7 passer rating, completing 67.5 percent of his passes for 4,042 yards with 26 touchdowns and five interceptions. The latter stat is particularly surprising considering everything the team gave up in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers to move up and get Mitchell Trubisky with the second pick of the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. I could feel that from the moment I was in that interview process. His close friendship with Mitch Trubisky helped seal the deal. "I've got good coaches and I've said before I think he's a phenomenal football coach". But this is a team game.

The most important element of Nagy's hire is his past work with quarterbacks. "But that was certainly a part of it". Kansas City won four in a row to close out the regular season before Saturday's collapse against the Titans.

While DeFilippo, 39, won't be the Bears' next head coach, there's still a chance he might leave.

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. "I know that our offense and offensive staff supported me ..."

"So this will be a new opportunity for me and it'll be a challenge".
