The Chicago Bears have named Kansas City Chiefs coordinator Matt Nagy as head coach on Monday, per multiple reports.

He replaces John Fox, who recorded a 14-34 record for the Bears in three seasons.

The Bears front office had met with five potential candidates, before meeting with Nagy on Sunday following the Chiefs' playoff loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Former Chiefs OC Matt Nagy is being hired as the head coach of the Chicago Bears, as @adamjahns said. HC dominos start to fall.

The Bears are going back to the well of more percentage-driven, offensive-minded coaches, after previously taking a shot with Marc Trestman, who's CFL success buoyed him into a short, ineffective stint.

Chicago likely selected the coach who can best develop 2017 high first-rounder Mitchell Trubisky, who struggled for much of his rookie season.
