Bears Hire Offensive Coordinator

Bears Hire Offensive Coordinator

Helfrich held a similar role in OR under Chip Kelly from 2009-12. That included a run to the first College Football Playoff championship game at the end of the 2014 season with Heisman Trophy victor Marcus Mariota at quarterback.

After 21 years of coaching collegiately, Mark Helfrich is making the jump to the NFL.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bears will hire former University of OR head coach as their new offensive coordinator. 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.

After four seasons and a 37-16 record, he was sacked in November 2016 and still owed $11.6 million as part of a contract extension that ran through January 2020. Helfrich served as the offensive coordinator for the Ducks from 2009-12 before being elevated to head coach after Chip Kelly left for the Eagles.

Nagy said he will call the plays and the offense will be his design, but Helfrich will obviously have plenty of influence.

The Bears are looking to get the most out of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and emerge from one of the worst runs in franchise history.

The first-time head coach, who was introduced as the 16th head coach in Bears' franchise history on January 9, already has an offensive coordinator and special teams coordinator in place.

The Bears finished 5-11 in 2017 and have missed the postseason in 10 of the last 11 years.

Helfrich becomes the second coordinator to be hired after the Bears named Chris Tabor as special teams coordinator on Wednesday.

Fangio's defenses have been ranked in the top 10 in points and yards during five of the last seven seasons.

London has spent nine seasons in the National Football League, the past four as the running backs coach for the Houston Texans. He returns to the Windy City after serving as an offensive assistant with the Bears from 2007-09.
