Chicago Bears reportedly retain defensive coordinator Vic Fangio

Known for the quick, high-flying offenses in Oregon, Helfrich will most likely merge his offensive gameplan with Nagy's spread offense.

Mark Helfrich spent his 2017 out of football. A fresh perspective like Helfrich's, rooted in the college game, can only help turn things around.

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.

Bears now have hired former Oregon HC Mark Helfrich as their offensive coordinator, per source. Charles London (running backs) and Harry Hiestand (offensive line) have also been hired by Nagy in the days following his introductory press conference at Halas Hall.

As much as the Bears sought a fresh voice and new approach for the offense and quarterback Mitch Trubisky, they were pretty happy with how the defense has come along. He worked under Koetter at Boise State in 1998 and then followed him to Arizona State. He spent the last seven seasons with the Cleveland Browns as their special teams coordinator.

The 167th-ranked de Minaur, who will play his first ATP Tour final on Saturday, advanced to the Brisbane International semifinals last week.

The Browns ranked sixth in kickoff return average against (21.8), seventh in the National Football League in punt return average (9.9), ninth in total kick return yards (8,974) and 10th in total return yards allowed (7,627) since Tabor joined Cleveland in 2011. He was an offensive assistant with the Bears from 2007-09.

Last season, Jones made 30 catches for 399 yards and one touchdown in 14 games. 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.

He takes over a 5-11 team that missed the playoffs for the seventh straight season and hasn't finished above.500 since Lovie Smith got fired after going 10-6 in 2012.

The Bears were 3-15 against the NFC North under Fox and dropped all six division games this past season.
