5. Matt Nagy’s first season as head coach proved he’s got a bright future in the NFL

If the Bears 2018 season was any indication, Matt Nagy is perhaps the best up-and-coming head coach in the NFL not named Sean McVay. In just a matter of months, Nagy literally changed the culture around Halas Hall, making the Bears into perhaps the most modern franchise in the NFL.

Nagy knows how to connect with players and he understands the importance of doing so. His phrase “Be You” is one that allows players to express themselves in any way they wish. Additionally, after the way the Bears lost in the playoffs, Nagy is perhaps the most motivated person at Halas Hall as the Bears begin their quest to represent the NFC in Super Bowl LIV.

Unlike Jaguars Head Coach Doug Marrone who’s been inconsistent throughout his coaching career, Nagy showed results in just one year. Nagy’s main student is Mitchell Trubisky and the two have developed a relationship which will benefit the Bears for the next decade.

Nagy isn’t going to let the Bears regress in 2019. If anything, his goal is to make the Bears even better and now that he’s got a good idea of what his team’s strengths and weaknesses are, he knows what it takes to play against the best teams in the NFL.
