Bears’ Vic Fangio To Remain As Defensive Coordinator

The Chicago Bears won’t be losing a key member of their coaching staff as Vic Fangio agreed to return as the Bears’ defensive coordinator, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune.

Fangio’s status with the team was in question when Matt Nagy became the head coach replacing the fired John Fox.

The Green Bay Packers were interested in Fangio, but opted to hire Mike Pettine instead. There was speculation that cost came into play during the decision making process as Fangio made upwards of $2M last year.

Chicago was 14th in defensive DVOA last season.

The Chicago Bears won’t be lacking any confidence as they head into the 2019 season, and veteran safety Eddie Jackson believes the team is ready to make some serious noise next season.

“Everything — how short, and how far, we came,” Jackson said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

“From the losing record to the winning record. How short we came, with the first-round playoff game with the field goal. Right now we just want to build off everything and let that be the fuel to our fire. We plan on taking this whole thing.”

The Bears’ success will hinge on the continued development of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky more than anything else.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Anthony Miller seems to be on track for a return in time for Bears’ training camp, according to Bears’ head coach Matt Nagy.

“He’s done a really good job of staying involved in the meetings,” Nagy said. “I can already tell with him not being involved out there he’ll hit me in the back and ask me about a play. Was it this play or was it that play? That tells me he’s engaged. So mentally he’s doing good.”

Miller is coming off a solid rookie season in which he hauled in 33 receptions for 423 yards and 7 scores.

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is excited about the revamped backfield on the team as they approach the 2019 season.

Tarik Cohen, David Montgomery and Mike Davis currently comprise the Bears three-headed monster running back rotation.

“We’ve got a three-headed monster that’s going to be able to make huge plays for this offense,” Trubisky said, according to Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune . “Very talented guys and pretty much handpicked by (general manager) Ryan Pace and Coach Nagy. I 100 percent believe in those guys.

“Just being around Mike and being back with Tarik, you just feel like these guys really fit this offense and are able to do the things we want them to do — running the zone scheme, making guys miss, extending plays, running guys over and catching the ball out of the backfield. That’s what we expect from David and Mike.”
