Notre Dame's Hiestand becomes Bears offensive line coach

Notre Dame's Hiestand becomes Bears offensive line coach”

The Bears, who have not made the playoffs since their heartbreaking loss to their hated rival the Green Bay Packers back in the 2010-11 NFC Championship Game, have finished last in the NFC North standings in four consecutive seasons. Nagy isn't the youngest head coach in the league - the Los Angeles Rams' Sean McVay won't be 32 until later this month - but at 39 he gives the Bears a young coach to go with a young general manager and quarterback.

Meanwhile, Bears fans continue to wait for word on whether defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will return to the team. However, the Packers chose to go with Mike Pettine as their defensive coordinator, which limits the options for Fangio.

Mitchell Trubisky Led to Nagy's Hiring? Nagy had been Kansas City's offensive coordinator for two seasons, and had worked with quarterback Alex Smith for five. He will now have to mold Trubisky to be the franchise quarterback Chicago is hoping for and Nagy knows this, but it isn't the only reason why he is there.

"When I first got here", Long said, "you could just tell who the alphas of the group were and it was the (offensive) front that we have". He just wants to help you and help the team win.

Nagy was deciding between teams with a lot of work to do.

According to NBC Sports Chicago's John Mullin, the Bears are aiming to hire Notre Dame offensive line coach Harry Hiestand for the same position with the team.

Before helping Lovie Smith and the Bears from 2005-2009, he spent eight seasons at IL. He's all about the offensive line and he has no other agenda.

The Irish offensive line struggled with its chemistry and execution in 2016 and the results were evident in the program struggling to a 4-8 record.
