Vic Fangio agrees to new 3-year deal with Bears

Oregon State Athletics

Matt Nagy responds to a question after Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace introduced him as the club's 16th head coach in franchise history during an NFL football news conference Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018, in Lake Forest, Ill.

Helfrich began his coaching career as running backs coach at Southern Oregon in 1996 before playing and serving as offensive coordinator in Europe with the Vienna (Austria) Vikings in 1997.

Helfrich has never coached in the National Football League before, but he worked for current Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter at Boise State before a successful run at OR under Kelly, the former Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers coach.

The Bears recently hired coach Matt Nagy, who has said he will handle the play-calling duties.

With Fangio coming back, it's likely the Bears will consider retaining multiple position coaches on that side of the ball, with Nagy having the final say.

Haryana BJP chief Subhash Barala's son Vikas gets bail in stalking case
The latest development comes a day after Varnika's cross-examination had concluded in the district courts in Chandigarh . The Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday granted bail to main accused Vikas Barala in Chandigarh stalking case .

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. Now, he is expected to aid in the development of Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

The first-time head coach, who was introduced as the 16th head coach in Bears' franchise history on January 9, already has an offensive coordinator and special teams coordinator in place.

He takes over a 5-11 team that missed the playoffs for the seventh straight season and hasn't finished above.500 since Lovie Smith got fired after going 10-6 in 2012.

The 39-year-old Nagy spent the past 10 seasons working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City. But the Bears will need to acquire some play-making receivers, which they sorely lacked this past season. Now that the Fangio wait is over, you can expect the rest of the team's assistant coaches to be named pretty quickly.

Tabor spent the past seven seasons as Cleveland's special teams coordinator. The status of assistant offensive line coach Ben Wilkerson is unknown.
