With AP Photos.The Chicago Bears have hired former OR coach Mark Helfrich as their offensive coordinator.
This is a big piece of news for Matt Nagy and his staff.

Chicago's offense features quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the second overall pick in last year's draft, who passed for 2,193 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions as a rookie.
Before posting a 37-16 overall record at OR, which included guiding the Ducks to a Pac-12 championship and an appearance in the national championship game in 2014, Helfrich was Kelly's offensive coordinator. The Bears were 5-11 in 2017.
The 39-year-old Nagy spent the past 10 seasons working under Andy Reid in Philadelphia and Kansas City. It also figures to benefit running backs Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, whose roles often lost consistency under the watch of offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains last season.
Tabor had been in the same position with the Browns since 2011 and had previously worked as assistant special teams coach for the Bears in 2008-'10 under the watch of coach Lovie Smith and special teams coordinator Dave Toub. Per Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, who could have signed with any team, has agreed to stay in Chicago to coach the defense. He was an offensive assistant with the Bears from 2007-09.
