Former Oregon Coach Mark Helfrich Hired As Chicago Bears OC

Still the new coach would still hire an offensive coordinator, and it appears he's made that selection.

Manheim Central alum Matt Nagy was named the new Chicago Bears head coach.

Hiestand has 36 years of coaching experience.

Helfrich returns to the sideline after serving as a college football analyst on FOX Sports, providing color commentary for games and working as an in-studio personality. During that time, he coached Cowboys All-Pro LG and former first-rounder Zack Martin, and Ravens' 2016 first-round pick LT Ronnie Stanley.

He went 37-16 with Ducks after becoming the head coach in 2013.

Overwatch League-Twitch Deal Worth At Least $90M
People from all over the globe can now watch the matches between their favorite teams as they unfold from Twitch. That deal is exclusive on joint tech-development and commercialization, not competition coverage.

Helfrich's crowning achievement in Eugene was leading the Ducks to the National Championship Game in 2014, the first year of the College Football Playoff. The University of Arizona was reportedly interested in hiring Helfrich to replace Rich Rodriguez.

It looks like he's found his new offensive coordinator, too. And his play-calling will likely reflect much of what he's learned in Andy Reid's West Coast-spread offense hybrid as far as utilizing playmakers in space and exploiting matchups.

Now that Nagy is the head coach, he's begun to assemble his staff for the 2018 season and beyond.

Helfrich, who developed Tennessee Titans quarterback and former Heisman Trophy victor Marcus Mariota in college, will work with Nagy in developing Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
