Mark Helfrich agreed to join the Bears as Matt Nagy's offensive coordinator

London has spent nine seasons in the National Football League, the past four as the running backs coach for the Houston Texans.

Fangio's defenses have been ranked in the top 10 in points and yards during five of the last seven seasons. Oregon's offensive coordinator from 2009-'12, Helfrich first oversaw the Chip Kelly up-tempo spread offense, which he continued as the Ducks' head coach from 2013-'16 after Kelly left for the NFL.

During his annual Thanksmas event, Maddon gave praise to new Chicago Bears head coach, who like Maddon is from Pennsylvania and took an interesting route to get to his dream job.

The first-time head coach, who was introduced as the 16th head coach in Bears' franchise history on January 9, already has an offensive coordinator and special teams coordinator in place. The hire is a great example of the "innovative" and "outside the box" thinking that appealed to general manager Ryan Pace when he chose Nagy.

The future of Vic Fangio remains uncertain. Special teams coordinator Chris Tabor also has been hired but the Bears have yet to announce any moves on defense. Before that he succeeded Chip Kelly as head coach at OR, with a 37-16 record over four seasons.

In Helfrich, Nagy has hired an offensive coordinator whose best work comes with a system different from his own.

However, Bettcher has one year remaining on his contract and the Bears would have to request permission from the Cardinals to meet with the Lakeville, Ind., native who grew up a Bears fan.

"That's a very important hire for me", Nagy said during his introductory news conference. Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has urged the team to promote Bettcher.

Fangio had been in discussions with the Bears the past few days about a possible return, even though he was free to negotiate with other clubs beginning Tuesday.
