Ex-Bears head coach Matt Nagy call return to Chicago on the opposite sideline when the Chiefs come to town on August 13.

Matt Nagy spent four seasons as head coach of the Chicago Bears, from 2018-2021.

After going 12-4 in his first season with the team and winning Coach of the Year, it was all downhill from there. That was his only winning season in Chicago, and while the team made the postseason twice during his four years there, it failed to win a playoff game.

Nagy finished his time in the Windy City with a 34-31 mark in regular season play (the Bears went 22-27 over his final three years) and he was fired at the conclusion of the 2021 season, along with former general manager Ryan Pace.

Shortly after he was let go by the Bears, he was hired by the Kansas City Chiefs to be their senior assistant and quarterbacks coach, reuniting him with his mentor, K.C. head coach Andy Reid. Now, Nagy will return to Soldier Field for the first time since leaving Chicago when the Bears play the Chiefs in what will be the first preseason game for both teams on August 13.
