Former Oregon Football Coach Mark Helfrich Lands With Chicago Bears

Former Oregon Football Coach Mark Helfrich Lands With Chicago Bears

Helfrich comes from the coaching tree of Chip Kelly and Dirk Koetter, which means he doesn't have a one-track mind in offensive play-calling.

Helfrich was the head coach at OR from 2013-2016 before being replaced by Willie Taggart. he served as the teams OC and quarterbacks coach for three seasons before that.

Helfrich, who was sacked by OR after the 2016 season, will be part of the Bears' staff under new coach Matt Nagy.

Perhaps the biggest appeal of the Colts' job is having Andrew Luck, one of the few franchise quarterbacks in the NFL. With his experience at the College Level and getting a Coordinator Position, all the pressure is off.

The Colts are reportedly interested in Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who in turn has been rumored to be interested in them.

Helfrich's crowning achievement in Eugene was leading the Ducks to the National Championship Game in 2014, the first year of the College Football Playoff. He has bided his time after he was sacked following a 4-8 season a year ago.




He most recently worked as a television analyst for FOX Sports last fall.

Nagy is expected to call his own plays in Chicago, but the addition of Helfrich could impact how the Bears look offensively with young quarterback Mitchell Trubisky heading into his second year as the starter.

Kelly, the newly-hired UCLA coach, had interest in adding Helfrich as his offensive coordinator, according to Jahns.

Mark Helfrich is a smart guy.

The 39-year-old Nagy arrives in the Windy City after spending five years with the Kansas City Chiefs, serving as offensive coordinator this past season.

The Oregon native has made stops at Boise State (1998-2000), Arizona State (2001-2005), Colorado (2006-08) and Oregon (2009-2012) as an assistant.
