A former University of Delaware Blue Hen is now ready to fly in the Windy City.
Matt Nagy, an All-American quarterback for Delaware during a record-breaking career in 1997-2000 and most recently the offensive coordinator for the National Football League’s Kansas City Chiefs, was named head coach of the Chicago Bears on Monday. He replaces John Fox, who served as the Bears’ head coach the last three seasons.
Nagy, a native of Manheim, Pa., becomes the first former Blue Hen to earn a head coaching position in the National Football League. His general manager at Kansas City, Brett Veach, is also a former UD football teammate and standout.
Both played for legendary Delaware head coach Tubby Raymond, who served as head coach of the Blue Hens for 36 seasons in 1966-2001. Raymond passed away last month at the age of 92.
Nagy, who has served on Andy Reid’s staff with both the Philadelphia Eagles (2008-12) and the Chiefs (2013-17), was promoted to the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator position prior to the 2016 season.
