Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio staying with Bears

Colts never offered HC job to Matt Nagy
Perhaps he would be considered for the defensive coordinator job under Nagy for the Bears.
The Bears defense ranked 30th in yards allowed and 31st in points allowed the year before Vic Fangio arrived.
Vic Fangio was passed over for the Bears' head coaching job and could have gone elsewhere, but chose to stay in Chicago.
Nagy now has assembled part of what looks like a fascinating staff, including offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich and special-teams coordinator Chris Tabor, who previously worked with the Bears in that role on Lovie Smith's former staff. Landing a former college head coach (Helfrich) and two longtime assistants with Chicago connections (Tabor and Fangio) appear to be terrific first steps for Nagy, a first-time head coach, as he finishes his staff hires.
Fangio, the former defensive coordinator at Stanford and the 49ers under Jim Harbaugh, re-signed Friday to continue to lead a defense he helped transform the past three seasons.
Fangio became a free agent Tuesday - the day Nagy was introduced - after completing his previous three-year deal with the Bears and had interest from other teams.
The status of Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio has been an open-ended question all week, but now it seems as though the team has finally found out his answer.
Turner hired by Panthers: The Carolina Panthers hired former Raiders head coach and 49ers coordinator Norv Turner, 65, as their offensive coordinator to replace Mike Shula, who was sacked after seven seasons with the team.
The team announced Friday that it has hired former OR coach Mark Helfrich as offensive coordinator and Chris Tabor as special teams coordinator.
Nagy still has several coaching positions to fill, but Fangio's return is somewhat of a clincher.
Chicago's defense ranked 10th overall, seventh against the pass, ninth in scoring and 11th against the run. And it also is likely to convince position coaches to return, including defensive line coach Jay Rodgers, secondary coach Ed Donatell and inside linebackers coach Glenn Pires. Those same 10 players have exactly one Pro Bowl berth since he left. His salary with the Bears will mitigate what the school still owes him.

A couple more? Or could it be as little as one more game? When you start talking about retiring, you're more than halfway there. Tomlin wasn't trying to diminish the Jaguars' regular-season accomplishments as a quarterback-smothering, ball-hawking defense.
