The Chicago Bears are reportedly ready to fire head coach Matt Nagy once the season concludes. The Bears are also reportedly set to overhaul their front office or bring in another football person to work with general manager Ryan Pace if he is retained.
One name the Chicago Bears should consider to be their football czar is Reese’s Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy.
Bears fans may not want another Nagy–Matt and Jim are not related–associated with the franchise but Jim Nagy knows what he is doing.
ESPN NFL Draft Analyst Matt Miller made the suggestion that Jim Nagy should be considered to run an NFL front office recently on local sports talk station 670 the Score.
"“He transitioned from being a scout to being someone who now runs an organization. He has to deal with players, agents, and the media. He has to deal with donors. He has to go do fundraising and public appearances. I think he is a name that should probably get a little more traction in terms of what he did as a scout and now what he has done running the Senior Bowl and really modernizing that event but also what he has to do as a front-facing person. As we see as so often that is where a lot of these people struggle.”"
Jim Nagy’s resume is impressive. Most importantly, he has been a part of winning organizations.
He was an intern for the Green Bay Packers in 1996–the year the Packers won the Super Bowl. He was a scout for the New England Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Seattle Seahawks. He has four Super Bowl rings.
Jim Nagy has also been around greatness.
He has worked for top NFL Executives in Ron Wolf, Scott Pioli, and John Schneider. He also worked for Pete Carroll—a known culture building head coach. He scouted for the greatest head coach of all time in Bill Belichick.
He has had a nice variety of mentors and being around the best. He has seen how a few winning organizations have gone about this whole winning process, as well as different viewpoints on how to win. It would be a welcomed change from the current general manager, who has been with one organization prior to coming to the Bears and thinks the New Orleans Saints way is the only way to build a winner.
