Following Stunning Loss to Titans, Chiefs OC Matt Nagy’s Stock as Possible Head Coach Drops

After the stunning home loss by the Chiefs to the Titans Saturday, it seems that any momentum that offensive coordinator Matt Nagy had is now history.

Nagy did chat with the Bears about their head coaching job, but as Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports says, don’t count on Nagy getting a head coaching job after the disaster that was the Chiefs 18-point lead.

I reached out to several current and former NFL execs – including many who have been involved in coaching searches – and they all agreed that the Chiefs’ debacle Saturday night is a massive setback for their coordinator, Matt Nagy. The young play caller was part of blowing an 18-point lead at home to a middling opponent with no passing game of its own, and systematically ignoring the league’s leading rusher in the process. “You can’t hire him now,” one grizzled front office exec said. “No way.” Nagy had meetings with the Bears and Colts this weekend. My money in Chicago is on a different young offensive coach, John DeFilippo, the Eagles’ quarterbacks coach, who is the kind of guy who won’t give newly empowered general manager Ryan Pace too much pushback. They are all about finding their guy to get the best out of Mitch Trubisky. Pace should try to move the moon and the stars to keep Vic Fangio as his defensive coordinator.
