The Kansas City Chiefs are not resting on their laurels after another disappointing finish to their 2021 season.
Therefore, they’ve started to bolster their coaching staff by adding former Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy as a senior assistant and quarterbacks coach.
Nagy got the boot from the Bears after four seasons and a 34-31 head coaching record.
He did make the playoffs twice with Chicago but did not win a game.
His addition has been well-received within the Chiefs organization, especially by one important person as CBS Sports’ Josina Anderson tweeted.
Things in Kansas City are going to be quite interesting to keep an eye on right after the NFL Combine & next season…Matt Nagy’s addition will not only prove to be good timing to handle the upcoming allocation of duties….but also is very well-received by Patrick Mahomes. #Chiefs

Anderson said, “Things in Kansas City are going to be quite interesting to keep an eye on right after the NFL Combine & next season…Matt Nagy’s addition will not only prove to be good timing to handle the upcoming allocation of duties…but also is very well-received by Patrick Mahomes.”
If a coaching hire has Mahomes’ approval, then it will do wonders for the team.
After all, Nagy nurtured the former league MVP when he was just starting his NFL career.
A Lifelong Andy Reid Disciple
His time in Chicago was the only time when Nagy did not coach alongside Andy Reid.
He was with the Philadelphia Eagles from 2008 to 2012 and eventually became offensive quality control coach.
Nagy also moved to the Chiefs when Reid joined the team.
He became the team’s quarterbacks coach from 2013 to 2015 and was promoted to offensive coordinator in 2016.
He held onto that position for two seasons and had the opportunity to coach a rookie Mahomes who was behind Alex Smith on the depth chart.
Now reunited, Nagy will have the opportunity to coach Mahomes as one of the league’s best play-callers.
Chances are that their partnership will yield great results.
