The Chicago Bears lost ace defensive coordinator Vic Fangio this offseason, as Fangio took the head coaching job for the Denver Broncos. The Bears went on to replace Fangio with Chuck Pagano.

Pagano is apparently throwing some new wrinkles into Chicago’s defense, which might sound a bit concerning given that the Bears’ defense finished third in the NFL this past season and shouldn’t really need any alterations.

However, head coach Matt Nagy is perfectly fine with what Pagano is doing and says that it will not lessen the team’s performance.

“I have zero concerns,” Nagy said, according to “It’s going to be exciting. We are seeing some different looks out there that we haven’t seen with Vic. It’s been neat.”

Back in January when Pagano was hired, Pagano said that Chicago’s defense would not change much with him at the helm, and we still have no reason not to believe the former Indianapolis Colts head coach at this point.

Pagano last coached in the NFL in 2017, when he coached the Colts to a 4-12 record with Andrew Luck sidelined due to a shoulder injury. He was then fired at the end of the season, but his six-year run with Indianapolis was largely successful overall, as he posted a record of 53-43 and led Indy to the playoffs three times (although Bruce Arians took over for Pagano in 2012 when Pagano was having cancer treatments).

The Bears won 12 games and captured the NFC North division title this past year, but fell to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.
