Bears hire ex-Oregon coach Helfrich as offensive coordinator

Mark Helfrich agreed to join the Bears as Matt Nagy's offensive coordinator

New head coach Matt Nagy retained defensive coordinator Vic Fangio officially on Friday, bringing him back on a three-year contract. 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.

Helfrich's main accomplishments all occurred at the collegiate level, where he was the offensive coordinator for OR under former head coach Chip Kelly.

Helfrich spent this past season as a college football analyst for Fox.

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 became Oregon's head coach after spending four seasons as the school's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach under Chip Kelly from 2009-12. With their fast-paced and prolific spread-option offense, the Ducks went 46-7 during that time.

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