Butler will get paid but he wants to go somewhere where they don't have 2 established highly paid veterans ahead of him.

Its official:

The Bears re-signed Vic Fangio as defensive coordinator, the team announced Friday. He received a three-year deal, according to ESPN.

Fangio, considered one of the league’s best coordinators, would have found other offers on the open market. But new head coach Matt Nagy found a way to convince Fangio to stay, the first big get of his tenure.

Fangio has spent the past three seasons as the Bears defensive coordinator. After inheriting a unit that ranked 30th in total defense in 2013 and 2014, the Bears finished 14th, 15th and 10th in 2015, 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Fangio arrived in Chicago from San Francisco, where he spent four seasons as the 49ers defensive coordinator.

The Bears also announced they hired Mike Furrey as wide receivers coach.

Furrey, who played in the NFL for eight seasons, recently completed his second season as the head football coach at Limestone College in Gaffney, S.C.

It's amazing how long it takes to turn a team around that was run into the ground with repeated poor draft choices. Still need talent and the thought is get as many picks as possible to hurry this process along. Angelo and Emery really did a number on this team and it's still recovering from it....

Cautiously optimistic at this point the direction the Bears are going.

IMHO Fox should've been fired before last year but maybe it worked out better as far as getting a better HC. And there is defensive continuity. Kind of a Lose (as in games and NFL relevance)-Win-Win situation :)

Its quite a brew of coaches in Halas Hall now. Here's hoping it ends with the taste of a Superbowl or two....

Go Bears !

We'll see how Nagy does as head coach. Coordinator for only two years, called the plays for only 6 games. Big step... Fangio was a great move. I see the D only getting better. At least Nagy has experience working with QB's and developing them. I hated seeing Fox and company fukking Trubisky up.. Fangio must think the Nagy choice is a good one or he would've hit the road..

The draft failures of Angelo, Emery and Pace's first year killed this team not so much the coaching.

Still too many holes on the roster - can Pace fill them all this offseason?
