With Eric Bieniemy off to Washington, the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs will have a new offensive coordinator in 2023. Today, they revealed who it will be.
On Friday the Chiefs announced that senior assistant and QBs coach Matt Nagy has been promoted to offensive coordinator. He returns to the role that he previously held from 2016 to 2017.
Nagy rejoined the Chiefs in 2022 after spending the 2018 to 2021 seasons as head coach of the Chicago Bears. The Bears fired him after going 6-11 in 2022 with a 34-31 and two playoff appearances in four seasons at the helm. Nagy has been a top assistant for head coach Andy Reid dating back to his Philadelphia Eagles days.
During his two years as the Chiefs offensive coordinator back when Alex Smith was their starter, the Chiefs went 22-10 and won back-to-back AFC West titles.
In his second year as offensive coordinator, the Chiefs finished top six in both points scored and yards gained for the first time since 2005.

Since then, the Chiefs have stayed in the top six for both in each of the last five seasons. But Matt Nagy has never been the full offensive coordinator to Patrick Mahomes over a full season with Mahomes as a starter. Even though they have worked together briefly in 2017, Mahomes wasn’t the starter then.
