KC Chiefs: Matt Nagy is officially named offensive coordinator
By Matt Conner
The Kansas City Chiefs have officially named Matt Nagy as the team’s offensive coordinator.
The Kansas City Chiefs have made official what everyone had been speculating all along by announcing that Matt Nagy will serve as the team’s offensive coordinator going forward into the 2023 season
The Chiefs made the announcement on Friday afternoon after waving goodbye to longtime offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy in recent days, who left for the same position with the Washington Commanders.
For Nagy, it’s a full circle moment to be re-installed as the offensive coordinator next to Andy Reid since he served in that role previously in 2016-17 before taking over as head coach for the Chicago Bears from 2018-2021. He returned to the Chiefs last year after the Bears decide to change direction in the front office and on the sidelines.
The Chiefs staff is still coming together after losing Bieniemy. Nagy’s shift means that there’s an opening for a quarterbacks coach. In addition, running backs coach Greg Lewis was reportedly in Washington with Bieniemy looking at a potential staff option there, which could open a couple of spots on the offensive side of Andy Reid’s coaching staff.
The Chiefs apparently kicked the tires on former Houston Texans offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton earlier this week but nothing more came out of the report.
