Bears keeping defensive coordinator Vic Fangio

Vic Fangio interviewed for Chicago’s head coaching job

Bears hire Helfrich as offensive coordinator

The Bears have had a busy week of hires this week, bringing in Mark Helfrich as their offensive coordinator and Chris Tabor as their special teams coordinator.

Mark Helfrich, then Oregon's head coach.

Helfrich was also reportedly offered the offensive coordinator position at UCLA by Chip Kelly-an especially enticing proposition for southern OR football fans given Chase Cota's commitment. In his first season at Oregon, Helfrich guided the Ducks to the national championship in the first-ever College Football Playoff, where they were defeated 42-20 by Ohio State.

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune confirms the Bears are expected to retain DC Vic Fangio. It's a system different from Nagy's modernized West Coast offense.

OR owed Helfrich an $11.6 million buyout.

Chicago's offense features quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the second overall pick in last year's draft, who passed for 2,193 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions as a rookie. However, he finished 4-8 in 2016 and was dismissed. But new head coach Matt Nagy found a way to convince Fangio to stay, the first big get of his tenure. Helfrich also has more than a decade of experience as a quarterbacks coach at the collegiate level. He also previously served as Chicago's offensive line coach from 2005 to 2009.

Fangio, the former defensive coordinator at Stanford and the 49ers under Jim Harbaugh, re-signed Friday to continue to lead a defense he helped transform the past three seasons.

His brother, Ron Turner, works as the team's offensive consultant and nephew Cameron is the assistant quarterbacks coach. The lines of communication have remained open and clearly Fangio requested time to make a decision. Fangio is believed to be a possibility to take a job with Shurmur.
